Abstract:

� Business Monitor International Ltd Page -- State-owned Antel has a monopoly on the fixed-line sector in delivering fixed voice and fixed broadband internet services through ADSL and FTTH.

Given the high rate of penetration, we expect growth to stagnate in ---- and beyond over the course of our forecast period and dip below the - level. ...Given the high rate of penetration, we expect growth to stagnate in ---- and beyond over the course of our forecast period and dip below the - level. Nevertheless, growth in the -G and -G market will be moderately strong and could present lucrative opportunities.
