Mobile penetration in Venezuela is below average for South America, while growth in the sector has been set back by the ongoing economic recession. The number of mobile subscribers fell 4.7% in the year to December 2015, in line with the fall in fixed-line and internet subscriptions as customers scale back their spending on services.

Nevertheless, the volume of data traffic has been increasing steadily, spurred by the popularity of social networks, the prevalence of smartphones and continuing investments from operators in LTE infrastructure to support mobile data services and traffic. Data traffic increased 76% in the fourth quarter of 2015, year-on-year.

Three major players operate in the Venezuelan mobile market: Movilnet, the mobile subsidiary of state-owned CANTV, followed by Movistar, the Venezuelan unit of Spain's Telefónica, and then by Digitel, a locally owned private company. In terms of revenue, the mobile sector accounted for almost 60% of overall telecom sector revenue in 2015, compared to 7% for internet services and 14% for subscription TV services.
