Argentina has an advanced telecom infrastructure though considerable investment is still required to update services in rural areas. To meet pent up demand for telecom services the government has embarked on a large-scale National Broadband Plan. In 2016 the state-owned infrastructure operator ARSAT launched a ARS4.53 billion program to extend broadband services to some 1,200 rural communities. By late 2019 this project was mostly complete.

Although there are numerous operators licensed to provide services, there remains insufficient competition. The provision of both broadband and mobile services is dominated by a few key players, including Movistar, Telecom Argentina and Claro. The broadband sector is dominated by Movistar and Telecom Argentina. The market saw some consolidation after Telecom Argentina acquired Cablevisión, the cable broadband unit of Grupo Clarín, in January 2018. Grupo Clarín retains an interest in the mobile segment following its January 2016 acquisition of Nextel Argentina.

Mobile revenue accounts for more than two thirds of total telecom revenue, and this proportion continues to rise at the expense of fixed-line revenue.
