Colombia Telecom Operators Country Intelligence Report

"Colombia Telecom Operators Country Intelligence Report," a new Country Intelligence Report by GlobalData, provides an executive-level overview of the telecommunications market in Colombia today, with detailed forecasts of key indicators up to 2025. Published annually, the report provides detailed analysis of the near-term opportunities, competitive dynamics, and evolution of demand by service type and technology/platform across the fixed telephony, broadband, mobile, and pay-TV segments, as well as a review of key regulatory trends.

Colombia’s telecom and pay-TV service revenues will decline from $7.4 billion in 2019 to $7.2 billion by 2020-end, as operators offer free internet services to support the citizens during the COVID-19 crisis. However, we expect that the total telecom service revenue will increase to $7.4 billion by 2025, mainly driven by steady growth in the mobile data, fixed broadband, and pay-TV segments.
