Chile Telecommunications Report

BMI View:   Chile is one of the most developed telecoms markets in Latin America , making it a high value market for operators, but market maturity does bring its own challenges. A high penetration rate in the mobile market means subscription growth opportunities are diminished, requiring operators to target subscription migration, wireless data services and value-added service .
