Increasing international bandwidth encouraging growth in internet use

BuddeComm’s report Paraguay - Telecoms, Mobile, Broadband, and Forecasts provides a comprehensive overview of the trends and developments in the country’s telecommunications market, including the regulator’s market data for 2012, operator and other industry data, and expected market developments in the coming years.

Economic background

Paraguay endured political instability and a poor economic performance in 2012, with GDP falling by 1.2%, though 2013 is expected to have recorded growth of between 10% and 12%. The outlook for 2014 remains uncertain, but is generally expected to see continued economic growth, albeit at a slower pace than in 2013.

Almost half of Paraguay’s population live below the poverty line, and though GDP per capita is improving it remains among the lowest in the region. Corruption is rife, as are drug smuggling and money laundering. Nevertheless, the country has enormous potential for growth. Foreign investors are welcome in all economic sectors.
