  • 2. Dear Executive, According to Informa Telecoms & Media, CARICAM was badly hit by the global recession, but already at the end of 2009 there were clear signs of recovery with the mobile market becoming increasingly competitive. In Central America, the recent liberalization of the telecommunications market in Costa Rica, the long running debate on the introduction of mobile number portability in El Salvador, the opening of the Nicaraguan market to new mobile operators, and the debate on the competitiveness of the telecoms market in Honduras, are all signs that the market is going through a moment of great dynamism. At the same time in the Caribbean the rapid expansion of a regional player such as Digicel has shaken up competition, and has favoured network investment and service innovation. To date thirteen countries in CARICAM, particularly in the Caribbean, have over 130% mobile penetration. With low fixed-line broadband penetration in many countries, there is a strong opportunity for mobile operators to drive industry growth and take a lead in the broadband market. Mobile broadband is developing fast with many operators having announced 3.5G deployments across the region. Mobile value added services take up is also expected to drive development across the region. As multiple SIM ownership continues to be a key trend, the voice market is more than mature and ARPU continues to decline. In this context, VAS have become a key focus for CARICAM operators, who are keen to leverage smartphone take up, in particular the huge regional success of Blackberry devices. Consumer applications such as mobile social networking and IM on Blackberry Messenger are popular applications in Central America and the Caribbean. However, operators are starting to look at evolving their VAS proposition beyond messaging towards mobile content and mobile banking. To date VAS still represent a fraction of operators’ revenue, but they are expected to soon become key drivers for revenue growth. That is exactly what CariCam Wireless is about. By incorporating operators, solution providers and consultancies presentations, debate, roundtable discussion and questions & answers, the objective of this conference is to explore the following key issues: • Market Evolution and Growth Opportunities • Services Strategies • Operational Efficiencies & Network Strategies • Convergence Opportunities • Trends & Opportunities • Wireless Broadband Strategies I’m looking forward to meet you personally in Puerto Rico!
