Sponsored Link: Honduras - Telecoms Market Overview & Statis

One of the poorest countries in the Latin America, Honduras has one of the least developed telecom infrastructures and the fourth lowest teledensity in the region. But promising changes are on the horizon since the opening of the telecom market to full competition in December 2005. Less than two weeks after the state-owned incumbent Hondutel lost its monopoly over the international long distance market, Millicom’s mobile operator Tigo halved international calling rates. Mobile telephony received a boost in 2004, following the November 2003 launch of a second mobile provider, Aló, and the arrival of América Móvil on the scene, when it acquired Aló in June 2004. Unsatisfied demand for basic telephony has driven a veritable boom in the mobile market, with annual growth rates of over 80%.
