Bolivia - Telecoms Mobile Market Overview and Broadband
One of the poorest and least developed Latin American nations, Bolivia has South America’s lowest mobile penetration and second lowest fixed-line teledensity. Mobile telephony suffers from poor quality of service and inadequate network capacity. In April 2007, the government moved to renationalize the incumbent operator, Entel, 50% owned by Telecom Italia. But negotiations between the Bolivian state and the Italian telco turned sour, leading to an impasse despite international conciliation attempts. If it gains control of Entel, the government plans to shift its focus from technological innovation to providing basic coverage in rural areas. This report provides an overview of the country’s telecom sector accompanied by relevant statistics and analyses. See report summary here.
