TITLE: Broadband in Latin America: Market prices and trends

YEAR: 2015

Research network DIRSI (Diálogo Regional sobre Sociedad de la Información) makes a sizeable effort to annually monitor prices for broadband services in Latin America. The objective is to promote dialogue in regard to widening access to broadband services within sectors with the lowest economic resources based on solid evidence and comparable data between countries. The study uses as a reference the OECD methodology, which takes into account the main operators in the market (with a market share above 10%), and defines broadband as an Internet access service that promises a data download speed greater than 256 Kbps. Based on the data collected, the final monthly price (including taxes) is calculated, prorated over the first 24 months of service.
