regulatory delays and market saturation

/PRNewswire/ -- Superior coverage and quality of
mobile broadband services and the deeper penetration of smart devices are
compelling mobile operators in
Latin America
to provide value-added services.
To keep pace with the demands of data traffic generated by smart devices,
operators are increasing capital expenditure on 3G network expansion and
bandwidth capability.
New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (http://www.wireless.frost.com),
Latin
America Mobile Services Market Outlook I, 2011
, finds that the market
earned revenues of
$79.56 billion
in 2011 and estimates this to reach
$112.97
billion
in 2017 at a compound annual growth rate of 6.0 percent, mainly driven
by the increasing relevance of mobile broadband and value added services.

Some operators in
Argentina
,
Brazil
,
Chile
,
Colombia
, and
Mexico
have already
upgraded their networks to 3.5G, while others are conducting trials of 3.5G and
4G. With 4G speeds reaching up to 1Gbps in low mobility communication,
mobile broadband is likely to substitute fixed broadband for a large percentage
of the population, opening up a vast market for mobile service providers.
"Investments in next-generation technologies will stoke the introduction of
several attractive services and applications for end users," said Frost & Sullivan
Telecom Services Team Leader Renato Pasquini.
Despite the market potential, operators are hindered by regulatory delays.
Initiatives such as mobile number portability, mobile virtual network operators
(MVNOs), cost-based mobile termination rates, and spectrum auctions, which
could have stimulated competition and attracted entrants, are being
implemented only in 2012 or later in some countries.
By
January 2012
, mobile number portability (MNP) was fully implemented only
in
Brazil
,
Chile
,
Colombia
, and
Mexico
. In
Argentina
, the implementation
occurred in
March 2012
, approximately 12 years after the publication of the
decree 764, which established the right for users to change operators while
keeping the number. Only in
Venezuela
was there no clear indication of this
service's introduction. The implementation of MNP is likely to increase
competition in mobile services markets and help reduce average prices.
However, even with MNP impelling operators to innovate mobile services, the
lack of competition in distant geographical areas and market concentration in
