Key Findings

* With revenue of US$2.9bn in 2014, 4.8% of GDP, the telecom services market in Guatemala is the largest in Central America. Over the next five years, we expect overall telecom services revenue to grow at a 3.4% CAGR, reaching $3.4bn by 2019. The mobile voice and data segments alone generated 66.1% of total revenue for the segment in 2014, while the fixed broadband Internet, voice and pay-TV segments accounted for the remaining 33.9%.
* By year-end 2014, mobile operators Movistar and Claro reported a combined net loss of 774,809 mobile subscriptions in Guatemala. This disconnection is the result of operators' internal policies to clean up their bases and improve their current ARPS levels.
* Pyramid Research projects Guatemala closed 2014 with an estimated 2.6m fixed access lines, with PSTN lines accounting for 72.3% of the total, a 3.5% decline from the previous year. Despite the fact that DSL will continue to be the most adopted broadband technology between 2014 and 2019, we expect cable to expand at a faster pace, as Tigo has announced plans to invest in upgrading and increasing its network capacity in Guatemala.
