MAP > the Telecommunications Market in Lithuania

Language version:

Colombia’s telecom infrastructure is fairly developed through service availability has been relatively poor in the small urban centers as well as the rural areas. Government has been able to endeavor in addressing this with the number of the public programs as well as facilitated entry of operators to mobile market in the bid to be able to improve competition as well as be able to extend the availability of the mobile broadband services country-wide.

There were about 2-dozen local telephony providers, most of which had been started as the private companies but later on became the public concerns that have been owned by the respective municipalities. A number of lines in services have continued to fall steadily with the customers abandoning old phones in favor of the mobile voice services. As in the other Latin American countries, most of the existing fixed telephone lines have concentrated in larger cities, hence going on to leave rest of population underserviced. Colombia’s broadband penetration has been relatively very high in this region, despite development in this sector being hampered by the poor fixed-line systems in many of this country’s departments.

The government has gone on and launched various initiatives to be able to increase the broadband takeup and has in place National ICT plan for the year 2008 to the year 2019, focused at encouraging the use of the ICTs as well as Internet services as the vehicle for the economic growth. Live Digital for People, between 2014 and 2019, focused at encouraging the use of the ICTs in the sectors does include education, health, agriculture and tourism and also does involve the projects which subside internet access for the schools, the low-income households as well as the rural areas. Computers for the Schooling program by early 2017 had been able to distribute over 1.6 million computers. Such efforts have enjoyed some considerable success that has led to high growth in a number of broadband subscriptions among low socio-economic groups in recent years. The cable broadband gets to command over half of fixed-line broadband markets by the subscribers, with the DSL having the falling share as well as with the fiber-based broadband developing strongly.

Despite most of the fiber infrastructure being concentrated in the high-density urban areas, development in the fiber broadband connections has outpaced other platforms in the recent years as well as developing footprint of the fiber networks that have been increasing leading to migration of the DSL subscribers
