London, United Kingdom, 2007/05/10 - Around 700,000 households in Latin America will be watching TV over an internet connection by 2011, according to a new study published today by the Centre for Telecoms Research.
The new study anticipates IPTV to take-off in the region amid increasing internet penetration and a migration of broadband connections to faster speeds (2 Mbit/s +).
”We expect IPTV to take-off in Latin America over the next five years as telecoms operators begin to promote internet television as a means of generating additional revenue streams,” said Raj Modi, Research Director at Centre for Telecoms Research.
The report Latin America Internet Market Databook, 2002-2011 expects Latin America to reach 30 million broadband connections in five years (an almost three-fold increase) with a market value of USD$14 billion.
