Brief

'Venezuela: Long-Awaited 4G spectrum Available, but Operators Face Uphill Battle to Build Coverage,' a additional Country Intelligence Report by Pyramid Research, offers a precise, incisive profile of Venezuela's mobile and fixed telecommunications and pay-TV markets established on exhaustive proprietary data and business insights from our research in the Venezuelan market. Published annually, this presentation-quality, executive-level report offers in-depth analysis of the near-term opportunities, ambitious dynamics and evolution of demand by service type and technology/platform across the fixed telephony and broadband, mobile and pay-TV sectors, additionally to a review of top regulatory trends.

Main highlights

- The Venezuelan telecom services market recorded global revenue of $14.0bn in 2014. Over the next five years, in US dollar terms, Venezuela's global market revenue will shrink at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of -4.40 percent to reach $11.2bn in 2019 (in local currency terms, the telecom services market will grow at a 5-year Compound annual growth rate of 22.10 percent).

- Fixed broadband penetration of population stood at 8.00 percent at year-end 2014, which translates into 2.4m lines. We expect broadband lines to reach 3.7m by year-end 2019, a penetration rate of 11.20 percent of the population. Much of the growth will be driven by Cantv reaching previously unserved areas of the country with comparably cost-effective xDSL-based prepaid and postpaid plans.

- After various delays, the long-awaited 4G auction in Venezuela took place in December 2014 (originally announced for year-end 2013). Movistar secured 20MHz and 40MHz of spectrum in the AWS and 2.5GHz bands, respectively. Movilnet secured 20MHz in the AWS band, while DirecTV secured 40MHz in the 2.5GHz band.

- During 2014, pay-TV operators in Venezuela faced meaningful challenges to obtain foreign currency for the purchase of content and additional set-top boxes. Despite this, pay-TV subscriptions registered year-on-year growth of 10.90 percent in 2014, to reach 4.6m and a household penetration of 69.30 percent, well above the region's average of 41.30 percent.
