Research and Markets: Chile - Broadband and Broadcasting Market - Overview, Statistics and Forecasts - 2012

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Chile - Broadband and Broadcasting Market - Overview, Statistics and Forecasts" report to their offering.

The high level of broadband penetration in Chile compared with other Latin American countries can be attributed to the country's relatively high GDP and its receptivity towards new technologies. Broadband plans on offer in Chile are among the fastest and least expensive in Latin America. In terms of broadband speeds, Chile is the regional leader.

Several operators provide broadband access; Movistar is in the lead, followed by VTR Globalcom. Claro, in third place, has a fast-growing market share. Competition in the broadband market is livelier in Chile than in most other Latin American markets; nevertheless, it remains weak by international standards, and is largely limited to competition across technologies (ie ADSL versus cable modem).

Chile's pay television market is one of the most mature in the region, with penetration ranking third in South America after Argentina and Uruguay. More than one Chilean household out of three subscribes to pay TV services.

This report provides an overview of Chile's internet, broadband, and pay-TV markets, including brief profiles of the main players (with operator data to Q2 2012) and accompanied by relevant statistics, analyses, and broadband scenario forecasts for the years 2015 and 2020.
