LatAm to reach current US/Canada 4G mark in three years

Bnamericas Published: Tuesday, June 25, 2019

Latin America will reach 500mn 4G connections by the end of 2022, when 5G technology should already gain traction across the region and three years after the US/Canada market hit that mark.

According to a 5G Americas report, 4G market share in Latin America was 44% at the end of Q1, below the global average of 51% and far below North America’s 87%.

There were 306mn 4G accesses for 698mn mobile subscriptions in Latin America while 348mn 4G accesses are forecast by end-year, the consultancy estimated.

Uruguay’s Antel claims to have been the first regional carrier to activate a commercial 5G network - even though the country has not yet auctioned respective frequencies.

5G auctions in the region are expected to pick up by late 2019/early 2020, with Chile, Brazil and Uruguay taking the lead.

5G Americas said 15 mobile operators (including Antel) have officially deployed commercial 5G networks and 47 new launches are expected for this year.
