Venezuela - Mobile Infrastructure, Broadband, Operators - Statistics and Analyses

NEW YORK, Nov. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Mobile penetration in Venezuela is below the 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 2015 and by a further 5.7% in the year to September 2016. This decline is in line with similar falls in the number of fixed-line subscriptions as customers scale back their spending on telecom services. Nevertheless, there has been some growth in mobile data traffic, spurred by the popularity of social networks, the prevalence of smartphones and continuing investments from operators in LTE infrastructure. In early 2017 Movilnet finally launched its own LTE services following several delays caused by its inability to purchase equipment from foreign vendors.
