Pay-TV and broadband revenues in the Dominican Republic are expected to exceed US$1.9bn in 2011-16, mainly driven by packaged offers, according to a study by Signals Telecom Consulting.
Competition has centered on low purchasing-power consumers, while market fragmentation has forced operators to offer basic - though competitive - services, according to the study.
Claro Codetel, which is part of Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim's América Móvil (NYSE: AMX), is the leader in this segment, being the first to offer quad play in the market, with access speeds of up to 50Mbps.
Claro Codetel's quad-play offer increases pressure on competitors such as Tricom, Wind Telecom and Sky to up their game and attract users with competitive services.
