Switch to digital broadcasts in the Dominican Republic put back to 2021The Dominican Republics fixed-line teledensity is well below the Latin American average, a legacy of under-investment in network infrastructure over the years. In common with other markets in the region, the mobile sector has become the preferred platform for voice services. With the rapid development of HSPA and LTE services, mobile broadband has also taken off.
The Dominican Republics income inequalities are still reflected in the distribution of telephony services, with many communities having very restricted access to service. The government has been addressing the issue of access in recent years and has funded a number of public projects to extend the reach of services to rural and underserved areas.
Considerable changes have developed since the auction of spectrum in May 2014, particularly with the launch of commercial LTE services.
Consolidation in the sector was seen in late 2013 when Orange Group, having invested some $150 million in its local network, sold Orange Dominicana to Altice Group. At the same time, Altice Group acquired the integrated telecoms services provider Tricom Telecom (both deals closed in 2014).
Regulator begins work on an update of the General Telecommunications Law; ASO delayed to 2021; Orange Dominicana rebranded as Altice Hispaniola; Aster contracts Ericsson to deploy its Mediaroom TV platform; Wind Telecom expands LTE infrastructure; Telemicro acquires Viva; mobile number portability time reduced to two days; report update includes the regulators market data to February 2016, operator data to Q1 2016, recent market developments.
