First of all, the report discusses the overall regional context along with major details of the market competitive landscape. Uruguay is ranked as one of the most developed and prosperous countries of Latin America, which is measured in terms of PPP-adjusted GDP per capita, just below Panama, Chile and Argentina. Currently, the country has one of the highest 4G/LTE penetration rates in Latin America, which mutually combined with a ‘high fiber to the home’ (FTTH) adoption rate that creates a productive ground for the expansion of a wide range of digital services and applications in sections such as OTT and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions related to smart cities, smart metering, smart home and smart building.

Moreover, the telecommunications market in Uruguay has been segmented on the basis of three major value-added services by the leading network providers including:

·         Mobile services

·         Fixed services

·         Pay-TV

Moreover, analysts have studied that in terms of computer penetration, Uruguay tops all other countries in the region by a considerable margin. With estimated revenue of $1.5bn or 2.9% of GDP, the telecom and pay-TV services market in Uruguay is one of the most emerged segments in the region. Also, high adoption of LTE 4G service with high-speed connections, close to 20 Mbit/s, recently introduced by ANTEL and Claro (Telmex) has created a remarkable growth for the market.

According to the key findings, the report predicts that the nation’s mobile subscriber base will rise at a CAGR of 1.6% during the 2016-2021 period, mainly driven by M2M connections and the increasing implementation of mobile data services, chiefly in less populated parts of the country, where the future expansion of 4G/LTE in the 700MHz band will have a greater impact.
