Cullen International’s Americas Telecoms Country Profiles provide the key facts about the telecoms sector, including the main policy priorities, in 20 countries in the region.
Guatemala and Cuba are the latest countries to be covered in this publication, including these facts:
ETECSA, the state-owned Cuban incumbent, has a monopoly to provide fixed, mobile and internet services in the country until 2023.
Investment in and use of mobile telephony and internet services has been growing over the past few years. Nevertheless, services affordability remains an issue, and continues to affect penetration levels among the Cuban population.
Under exceptions to the US embargo introduced in 2015, US companies have been allowed to sell personal communications equipment and telecoms services in Cuba, and to enter into direct interconnection and roaming agreements with ETECSA.
Telecommunications are regulated by the SIT, a technical agency of the Guatemalan Ministry of Communications, Infrastructure and Housing.
Among the key sector initiatives planned are the award of AWS spectrum for mobile communications in 2019 and the switchover to digital terrestrial television by 2022.
