The president of the Chamber of Telecommunications Services Companies (Casetel), Pedro Marín, stated that Conatel’s authorization to increase rates has allowed companies to make investments.
“This flexibility of rates has allowed and is allowing companies to migrate almost completely from 3G to 4G,” he stressed.
Likewise, he indicated that 78% of the Internet that is managed in Venezuela is through cell phones and residential fixed Internet occupies only 15%.
He argued that in the cell phone part “they have also been approving rate increases.”
He commented that the number of current cell phone subscribers in the country is 18,200,000 people, “which means that there has been a growth of around 3,000,000 cell phone lines.”
He specified in Union Radio that 54% of all mobile phone platforms are in 4G and 44% are in 3G: “but 2G practically disappeared, including Movilnet.”
