DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Dominican Republic - Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband - Statistics and Analyses" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
The Dominican Republic's fixed-line teledensity is well below the Latin American average, a legacy of under-investment in network infrastructure over the years. In common with other markets in the region, the mobile sector has become the preferred platform for voice services. With the rapid development of HSPA and LTE services, mobile broadband has also taken off.
The Dominican Republic's income inequalities are still reflected in the distribution of telephony services, with many communities having very restricted access to service. The government has been addressing the issue of access in recent years and has funded a number of public projects to extend the reach of services to rural and underserved areas.
Considerable changes have developed since the auction of spectrum in May 2014, particularly with the launch of commercial LTE services.
Consolidation in the sector was affected when Orange Group, having invested some $150 million in its local network, sold Orange Dominicana to Altice Group. At the same time, Altice Group acquired the integrated telecoms services provider Tricom Telecom. Altice Group is looking to sell its local unit, while Vietnam's Viettel in late 2018 expressed an interest in investing in the country's telecom sector.
