Colombia's broadband penetration is relatively high for the region, though growth in the sector has been hampered by poor fixed-line infrastructure in many areas of the country. The government has launched several initiatives to increase broadband take-up, including Computers for Schooling (which provides refurbished second-hand computers to schools), Compartel (which endeavours to provide every Colombian with access to telephone and internet services), Vive Digital (involving projects that subsidise internet access for schools, low-income households, and rural areas), and the National Fibre Optic Project.

There is also the Digital Connections Project, which has now entered Phase II, aimed at improving services in the more deprived urban areas.

ADSL is the leading broadband technology, though cable broadband has grown at a faster rate in recent years and by the end of 2015 the platform may be on a par with DSL in terms of the number of connections. The resurgence of cable modem is largely due to the growing popularity of triple play bundles including broadband, telephony, and cable TV.

Colombia's leading broadband players are the fixed-line operators Claro, UNE-EPM, Movistar, and ETB. Claro provides cable modem access, UNE offers both ADSL and cable modem services, while Movistar and ETB use ADSL technology.

The cable TV sector has undergone major consolidation and, as a result, two companies, Claro and UNE/Tigo, together control 89% of the market.
This report provides an overview of Colombia's broadband and pay TV markets, accompanied by relevant statistics, analyses, and broadband scenario forecasts for the years 2015 and 2020.
