Executive summary
Panamas internet and mobile sectors prop up revenue growthPanamas economic prospects remain promising despite a dip in GDP growth during the last few years. Nevertheless, growth remains high, at above 6percent annually, and this has had a positive knock-on effect on the countrys telecom market, which has also grown steadily and attracted considerable investment. Liberty Global in October 2015 made a bid to acquire Cable & Wireless Communications, which owns the incumbent telco Cable & Wireless Panama. The deal was accepted by Liberty Global shareholders in April 2016, and when completed it will enable Liberty Global to combine CWPs businesses in Panama and the Caribbean with its own operations in Chile and Puerto Rico. The merged operator will provide improved bundled service offerings and stimulate competition with the other regional players Digicel and Claro.
Telecom revenue has broached $1 billion during the last few years, and continues to increase steadily, with mobile services and broadband being the fastest growing sectors.
Panamas fixed-line teledensity is well below average for the region, though it is rising steadily from a relatively low base, largely due to alternative operators making use of cable or fixed-wireless networks.
Competition remains limited in the broadband sector, where the incumbent Cable & Wireless PanamA has resisted unbundling its local network and as a result has secured a virtual monopoly in the delivery of DSL access. The only cross-platform competition is from cable modem and WiMAX services.
The mobile sector has flourished in recent years, and the popularity of having multiple SIM cards has pushed mobile penetration rates above 174percent, considerably higher than the regional average. The arrival of two new mobile players at the beginning of 2009 resulted in additional competition and steep price reductions which have shaken the market. Digicel PanamA launched operations in 2008, followed by AmErica MOvils Claro in 2009. This ended the duopoly long enjoyed by Cable & Wireless PanamA and TelefOnicas Movistar.
Internet penetration has grown in recent years and is expected to do so steadily further into 2016 and into 2017 as a result of consumer demand for services as well as the stimulus of the governments Internet for All project. In 2010, Panama became one of the first countries in the world to offer free wireless broadband access nationwide. The National Internet Network project does not compete with private broadband providers, because its aim is digital inclusion and not the provision of broadband access.
