Argentina Telecoms Infrastructure, Operators, Regulations Statistics and Analyses 2019 - ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN--()--The "Argentina - Telecoms Infrastructure, Operators, Regulations - Statistics and Analyses" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

Argentina has an advanced telecom infrastructure though considerable investment is still required to update services in rural areas. To meet pent up demand for telecom services the government has embarked on a large-scale National Broadband Plan. In August 2016 the state-owned infrastructure operator ARSAT launched a ARS4.53 billion project to extend broadband services to some 1,200 rural communities. By mid-2018 this project was about 75% complete.

Although there are numerous operators licensed to provide services, there remains insufficient competition. The provision of both broadband and mobile services is dominated by a few key players, including Movistar, Telecom Argentina and Claro. The broadband sector is dominated by Movistar and Telecom Argentina. The market saw some consolidation after Telecom Argentina acquired Cablevisin, the cable broadband unit of Grupo Clarn, in January 2018. Grupo Clarn retains an interest in the mobile segment following its January 2016 acquisition of Nextel Argentina.

Mobile revenue accounts for more than two thirds of total telecom revenue, and this proportion continues to rise at the expense of fixed-line revenue.
