ACCESS REPORT @ New Repot shares details about the Guyana - Telecoms Mobile and Broadband - Statistics and Analyses

 

The only English-speaking nation in South America, Guyana has a small population with among the lowest GDP rates in the region. Nevertheless, GDP growth has been impressive in recent years and economic growth projections further into 2016 are encouraging.

 

Guyana’s fixed-line teledensity is above average for Latin America and much higher than would be expected given the country’s poor economic indicators. Mobile and broadband penetration, however, are well below the regional average.

 

Guyana Telephone and Telegraph (GT&T, rebranded as GTT+ in late 2015), controlled by Atlantic Tele-Network (ATN), has a monopoly over fixed-line services, but it competes with Digicel in the mobile market.

 

GTT+’s fixed-line monopoly was renewed for 20 years in December 2010, but before renewing it the government drafted a new Telecommunications Amendment Bill aimed at opening the telecom sector to competition. The bill was abandoned in September 2011 shortly before the national elections, but is again to be put before the National Assembly, this time benefiting from inputs from both GTT and Digicel. It includes provisions to fund a Universal Services Fund through a tax on telcos’ revenue.

 

Although GTT+’s exclusivity does not extend to the broadband retail market, the company is the only DSL operator. The only effective competition comes from fixed-wireless broadband providers.

 

Fixed broadband services have improved, especially since the opening of the SG-SCS submarine cable in mid-2010, but they are still comparatively slow and expensive, and the number of broadband subscribers is small. The submarine cable being proposed by Digicel would provide a second link to international cable infrastructure in the region, and would go far in reducing consumer pricing.
