BMI View:
Our expectation for major changes in the Caribbean has already begun to play out, with the news that CWC will need to sell its 49% stake in operator Telecommunications Services of Trinidad and Tobago (TSTT). This means the market is looking at a significant shake-up, one of many that will take place in the region. The CWC acquisition of Columbus International will have a far-reaching regional impact in the broadband internet and pay-TV markets, which remain underdeveloped and ripe for growth and is already affecting regulatory environments in other markets. In response to the acquisition we expect acquisition activity from rival Digicel in the broadband and pay-TV market, as it looks to match CWC's scale. Digicel already agreed to the buyout of Bermuda Telephone Company and more can be expected in the coming year. We expect interest in the region to really take off in 2015, with plenty of opportunities for interested players to enter these markets.


Key Data:
- Cayman Islands has the highest mobile penetration at over 160%, while Cuba's penetration rate remained below 20%.
- ETECSA plans to activate 800,000 new mobile lines in 2015, according to ETECSA Communications Director Luis Manuel Diaz. The operator reportedly activated 565,000 new mobile lines in 2014. ETECSA also expects to activate 30,000 landlines in 2015, up 42% from 2014. Diaz revealed that the reduction in international mobile tariffs, initially valid until December 30 2014, will be extended until June 30 2015.
