  • Paraguay
    Population: 6,348,917
    Internet Users: 530,300 (7.8% of the population)
  • Information
    In 1995, the Paraguayan government liberalized the mobile and Internet segments to encourage the entry of new competitors into the market
    Failure to adequately encourage broadband growth has led to a very low broadband penetration rate
    Paraguay has one of the lowest Internet and broadband penetration rates in South America
    By December 2008, Internet penetration was 1.67 per cent and broadband penetration was 1.5 per cent
    Most ADSL services offer download speeds of between 64 Kbps and 1024 Kbps and barely make it over the minimum speed threshold for true broadband services
  • Mobile Broadband
    Due to the patchy fixed-line infrastructure in the region, operators in this market were left with virtually no other choice but to use wireless technology
    In contrast to the broadband sector, Paraguay’s mobile sector is far more dynamic
  • Five Major Providers
    ...offering mainly GSM/GPRS services are:
    Tigo (Telecel) 50 per cent market share
    HolaParaguay (KDDI) branded as Vox 11 percent market share
    Personal (Telecom Argentina)
    Claro (AmerciaMovil) 9 per cent market share
