Executive Summary
In revenue, the Colombian telecommunications services market grew % in 2012, reaching $ million. In lines in service (LIS), the market grew % in 2012, reaching million.
Among the factors impacting the market are companies investing in pay-TV services operations and integrating fixed and mobile operations to offer converged services.
The main drivers for growth are the positive economic outlook, intensifying competition, investments by competitors to offer triple, quadruple, and quintuple-play bundles, and investments to implement and expand 3rd generation (3G), long-term evolution (LTE), GigaEthernet, fiber to the home (FTTH), and other networks.
However, restraints for the development of the Colombian telco services market are commoditization that results from extreme competition and leads to decreasing margins and a low return on investments (ROI) in the infrastructure network in distant areas and small cities. With regard to regulatory issues, Colombia's Ministry of Information Technologies and Communications (MinTIC), launched in 2010 its Vive Digital Colombia project that aims to enlarge the usage of information technology services among people, businesses, and government. The main goal of Vive Digital is to provide broadband connectivity to million people by the end of 2014. Regarding broadband bandwidth, the government’s Resolution 2352 of 2010 modified the definition of broadband, establishing a minimum effective download speed of Kbps.
In December 2010, Act 1430, which eliminates the charge of value-added tax (VAT) taxes to Internet services for users in the 1, 2 and 3 social strata, was approved. Additionally, in 2013, MinTIC conducted the largest spectrum auction in Latin America for 4G. Claro, Movistar, Avantel, DIRECTV, and a consortium formed by Empresa de Telecomunicaciones de Bogota (ETB) and Tigo were awarded spectrum to deploy 4G services. Mexico's Azteca 4G failed to win a license.
Market concentration is expected to intensify, since all operators are increasing their capabilities through mergers and fusions of their formerly separate divisions. Such is the case of América Móvil, which merged its mobile operations, Comcel, with Telmex, and with Telefónica and Movistar that are consolidating. After these efforts, América Móvil held % of the total Colombian market, followed by Telefónica S.A. with %. Further, UNE merged with EPM Bogota and is expected to complete the merging process with Millicom in 2014.
