Venezuela Internet Usage and Broadband:

Venezuela Convergence, Broadband and Internet Market Report
Internet and broadband penetration in Venezuela are below average for Latin America and much lower than would be expected, considering that Venezuelaés GDP per capita is the highest in the region. State-owned incumbent CANTV has a monopoly in the provision of ADSL, with which it dominates the broadband sector. The only competition comes from cable modems, wireless broadband, and satellite. As a result, ADSL in Venezuela is slower and more expensive than in other Latin American countries. Inter occupies a distant second place after CANTV in the broadband market, with a triple-play package that includes cable TV, cable modem, and telephony. This report provides an overview of Venezuelaés Internet, broadband, and pay-TV markets, accompanied by relevant statistics, analyses, and broadband scenario forecasts for the years 2010, 2015 and 2020. See report summary here.

Venezuela - Key Statistics, Regulatory Overview and Fixed Network Markets
Venezuela’s fixed-line teledensity is only slightly higher than average for Latin America, a poor performance based on the country’s GDP per capita, the highest in the region bar a few Caribbean islands. Since 2007, however, fixed lines in service have been growing by more than 20% annually, one of the fastest growth rates in the region. Based on the principle that access to telecommunications is a fundamental human right, the renationalised incumbent CANTV has been expanding the reach of its telephone network to municipalities with no telecom services, and has been rolling out lines in under-serviced areas. This report provides an overview of Venezuela’s telecom infrastructure and regulatory environment, together with brief profiles of the main fixed network operators and statistical data. See executive summary here.

Venezuela - Mobile Communications and Mobile Data Market Report
Mobile telephony in Venezuela has been far more dynamic than the fixed-line market, so much so that mobile phones outnumber fixed lines in service by around 4.6 to one. Mobile penetration is among the highest in Latin America, trailing only Argentina, Uruguay, and a number of Caribbean islands. Venezuela is also a regional leader in terms of SMS traffic, the number of text messages surpassing the number of minutes an average Venezuelan talks on a mobile phone. The country remains one of the last bastions of CDMA in Latin America, but the two leading mobile operators, Movilnet and Movistar, are finally turning to GSM. The third operator, Digitel, offers only GSM services. This report provides an overview of Venezuela’s mobile market, accompanied by statistical data and brief profiles of the operators.
