Uruguay-Brazil Cable to Start Working by 2018, Expects BuddeComm in Its New Report Now Available at MarketPublishers.com24 May 2016 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – Uruguay is one of the most politically stable countries located in Latin America. Its government takes measures to make the country more sympathetic to investment and provides support to businesses.
Uruguay can boast one of the highest broadband penetration rates in this region. It also has one of the highest highest fixed-line teledensity rates, with Costa Rica being a leader in this space.
However, Uruguay is the number one in terms of computer penetration in Latin America.
The local fixed-line market is not privatized and liberalized. A monopoly in the provision of local fixed broadband services and telephony belongs to Antel which is owned by the state. Other segments of the telecom marketplace are now opened to the competition. Some other top players in the telecom field comprise Movistar and America Movil.
Broadband access via cable is not available in this country. Data transmission over pay TV networks is prohibited in Uruguay.
Antel has recently invested over USD 29.5 billion in the Uruguay-Brazil cable to link the country with Brazil and have connectivity with Florida. The project is expected to be implemented by 2018.
