Research and Markets: Mexico - Broadband Market Insights, Statistics and Forecasts - Mexico's Broadband Plan Has Called For Broadband Penetration To Reach 22% By The End Of 2012

Apr 13, 2012 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/6c426a2f/mexico_broadband) has announced the addition of the "Mexico - Broadband Market Insights, Statistics and Forecasts" report to their offering.

Broadband is one of the highest growth sectors in Mexico's telecommunications market. Nevertheless, the market suffers from a lack of competition, with Telmex still accounting for the lion's share of ADSL subscribers. The main cable TV providers, Megacable, Cablem?s and Cablevisi?n, have begun to incentivise the purchase of triple play bundles of cable TV, broadband and telephony, and as a result their broadband subscriber base continued to enjoy healthy growth in recent years. Nevertheless, there is significant scope for additional growth as Mexico's broadband penetration is less than half of the OECD average while its broadband prices are amongst the highest in the OECD. This report provides an overview of Mexico's broadband and internet market, accompanied by relevant statistical data and broadband forecasts to 2016.

Key Developments: Low broadband penetration around 13% well below the OECD average; ADSL remains the most popular form of broadband internet access at 75%; Telmex leads with a 75% ADSL market share; cable operators report lower churn due to triple-play services; Smart Grid deployments to gather pace into 2012; LTE looms over further substantial WiMAX investment; government's CompuApoyo initiative targets 1.7 million homes for computers and broadband access; operator data to end-2011; market developments into 2012.

By early 2012, there were only an estimated 20 major ISPs operating in contrast to the nearly 350 companies which have over the years registered to provide ISP services.

In a bid to ensure that all citizens can access broadband, the government in early 2012 devised a program to enable low-income families to get both computers and broadband services. The CompuApoyo initiative is focused on closing the digital gap within the country and extending the availability of online access to services such as health and education.
