In Chile, as in other mature markets, data services are gaining relevance in
the overall picture and will be key factor for growth in the market, notes Derek
Medlin, Senior Analyst at Pyramid Research and co-author of the report. Data
will grow to represent 36 percent of total market in 2014 from 22 percent in
2009, he adds. The report found availability of mobile data plans and the
widespread availability of triple-play bundles, pushed by all fixed operators,
will drive mobile and fixed broadband uptake.

We anticipate that mobile data revenue will represent nearly 35 percent of
total mobile revenue by 2014, from 12 percent in 2008, as a result of increasing
adoption of mobile broadband connectivity solutions such as datacards and
browsing services and the higher usage of infotainment services which include
services such as ringtones, games, music, and video, continues Medlin.
