Telecommunications in Nicaragua

Nicaragua has the second lowest teledensity in Latin America after Haiti. However, 2004 brought some momentous changes to the telecom market. In January 2004, the government sold its remaining 49% interest in Enitel to América Móvil, thus completing telecom privatisation. In April 2004, the regulator announced that Nicaragua’s fixed-line market would be opened to full competition in December 2004. In August 2004, América Móvil increased its interest in Enitel to 99.03%, and applied for authorization to merge Enitel Movil with Sercom Nicaragua. In October 2004, BellSouth completed the sale of its Nicaraguan unit TCN BellSouth to Telefónica Móviles. As a result, the mobile industry in Nicaragua may soon be served by only two nationwide operators: Telefónica Móviles and América Móvil.

Nicaragua Telecommunications Market Overview and Statistics
Nicaragua has the second lowest teledensity in Latin America after Haiti. Rural areas have limited access to telephone facilities as distance, isolation, and lower incomes have made them less attractive to the incumbent operator. America Movil’s Enitel holds a virtual monopoly over the country’s fixed lines. Full liberalisation of the fixed-line market is still awaiting proper implementation, having been delayed by political and legal wrangles. The mobile market, on the other hand, is a lively duopoly between Telefonica’s Movistar and America Movil’s Claro. Mobile phones exceed the number of fixed lines in service by more than nine to one. This report provides an overview of the country’s telecom sector accompanied by relevant statistics and analysis.
