STRENGTHS
Chile ranks 33rd in GCI 2019, maintaining its position from GCI 2018.

As one of the most prosperous economies in Latin America, Chile scores well in GCI indicators, with above average performances in most broadband-related indicators. This year saw improvements in its scores for both FTTH and 4G coverage. Chile scored the maximum for both smartphone penetration and mobile broadband this year, despite a decrease in mobile broadband affordability. Download speeds and user experience with e-Government also both improved this year. By 2020, over 60% of all mobile connections (a total of nearly 15 million connections) is expected to use 4G LTE technology.

The fast broadband connection that 4G offers will drive growth in data volume and bandwidth. The ICT industry is very bullish on this trend, which creates room for development in the data center industry. Chile scored above average for its investment in data and storage systems and for its outstanding security and quality, which lays a solid foundation for a digital economy and will in turn boost broadband infrastructure and related services. IoT investment has also increased, which builds the potential for future exploration of this industry.
OPPORTUNITIES
The Internet of Things will be ubiquitous, extending around the world with a vast array of sensors, terminals, in-equipment chips. And more, generating a vast amount of network traffic across millions of machines and components. Networks supporting IoT must therefore deliver great speed and connectivity.

Chile’s Digital Agenda will provide ICT infrastructure in underserved territories with high speeds and reasonable prices. The agenda seeks to double Internet penetration to 80% by 2020, while lowering the average price of ICT services. Other important objectives include providing free public Wi-Fi to 100% of communities, increasing the number of high speed connections, reducing piracy, increasing ICT sales as a proportion of GDP, integrating ICT technology into all areas of education, and encouraging the digitalization of public services and e-commerce in SMEs.
