The fixed-line telecom market in Guyana is still a monopoly, despite numerous attempts at liberalisation. Guyana Telephone and Telegraph (GT&T), controlled by Atlantic Tele-Network (ATN), is the country’s only fixed-line operator, and dominates the mobile market. A competing mobile player, Cel*Star, launched services in November 2004, and had managed to corner about 13% of the market by early 2006. The government announced, in February 2006, that it intended to issue a new mobile licence, to Digicel. While fixed-line teledensity and mobile penetration in Guyana are both below the regional average, the country has a surprisingly large number of Internet users, much greater than one would expect from its level of GDP per capita, which is amongst the lowest in Latin America.
