Telenco LATAM, the key partner for FTTH & FTTB roll-outs in Latin America
Published on Tuesday, March 16, 2021
To support the fibre optic boom throughout Latin America, Telenco LATAM offers passive network equipment developed for meeting the needs of each market. Due to a local presence, a full catalogue of FTTH connectivity solutions and a design office with a sharp expertise in telecom infrastructures, Telenco LATAM is a strategic partner for developing fibre optic networks across the South American continent.
Latin America to register the fastest growing FTTH/B market in the world
South America is the third region in the world in terms of FTTH/B infrastructure roll-outs, just behind Asia and Europe. If the trend continues, Latin America is expected to catch up and even overtake Europe by 2024. Therefore, LATAM will double its FTTH/B deployment rate between 2018 and 2024.
While the number of subscribers to ultrafast broadband networks is growing exponentially in Latin America, differences can be noticed between the different countries and even between regions within the same country.
Mexico invests massively into fibre to provide « Internet for all »
Just like Europe, Mexico has set itself ambitious goals to fast pace the development of very high-speed networks throughout its territory by 2024. Indeed, the Federal Commission for Electricity (CFE) announced at the end of 2020 an investment of around 550 million dollars for the expansion of Internet infrastructures. Through the “Internet for all” programme, the CFE aims to implement 220,000 free Internet access points, but also to extend the access to ultrafast broadband networks to 130,000 towns and to adapt the existing infrastructure so to enable “large data transfer capacity”.

+ 500 000km of fibre optics deployed in Mexico in 2020
+ 250,000 m² of data centers in 2020 in Mexico
