Chile - Broadband and Broadcasting Market - Overview, Statistics and Forecasts
Chile's broadband market is one of the most developed in Latin America. For many years - in fact, from the early days of broadband until 2009 - Chile retained the regional leadership in terms of fixed broadband penetration. Slow growth in 2010, however, has relegated it to third place, after Uruguay and Argentina. The slowdown was partly due to the effects of the devastating earthquake at the start of the year, partly to the mobile broadband boom, and partly to the fact that saturation has been reached in the urban middle- and upper-income segments. Due to weak broadband competition, the government is considering the establishment of a wholesale telecom infrastructure provider. In terms of broadband speeds, Chile is the regional leader, with a mean download speed of 6.45Mb/s (as of June 2011) - which, though high for Latin America, is still low compared with the rest of the world. This report provides an overview of Chile's Internet, broadband, and pay-TV markets, accompanied by relevant statistics, analyses, and broadband scenario forecasts for the years 2015 and 2020.

Chile - Telecom Market Trends, Key Statistics and Regulatory Overview
Chile's telecom sector is one of the most developed in Latin America, with a state-of-the-art infrastructure and regulatory system. In July 2010, Chile became the first country in the world to pass a Network Neutrality Law aimed at ensuring free and equal access to the Internet. Number Portability (NP), approved in August 2010, is scheduled for launch in late 2011 - mobile NP first, then fixed NP. Competition, investment, and innovation have been key factors in the development of the country's telecommunications. Chile's market-oriented economy and its openness to international investment have made it a popular target with foreign investors. With solid GDP growth and strong domestic demand predicted for 2011, telecom revenues are expected to continue posting double-digit growth rates. The fastest growing services will be fixed and mobile broadband. Smartphones sales are likely to escalate, driven by lower prices and intensive use of social networks. This report provides an overview of Chile's telecom sector and regulatory environment, accompanied by statistical data, analyses, and outlook.
