It's Time for Regional Trends in Latin America

Capacity LATAM is back for 2021. And Senior Analyst Anahí Rebatta is already prepping her popular annual presentation on regional trends.

Join us for a special pre-event rundown of the Latin America market, including new subsea developments.

Building Resiliency for Submarine Networks

Our latest research on Latin America shows that international bandwidth demand is strong in the region. 

With an ongoing surge in new submarine cable deployments, content providers are expanding their geographic reach as both owners and anchor customers of new cable systems. (You can take a closer look here.)

Your 2019 Latin America Market Trends Are Here

Another year, another brilliant update on trends in Latin America wholesale telecom from Anahí Rebatta.

This year Anahí shared insights on growth drivers, infrastructure challenges, new cable projects, and opportunities within the regional wholesale industry.

What Will The Global Internet Look Like Next Year?

Hold on, let me quickly grab my crystal ball.

Okay. Now that I've got that, let's see what it says about the future of the global internet. (And let's all agree that by "crystal ball" I mean "notes from our 2021 Global Internet Geography update.")

Retail International Call Revenues Down to $64 Billion in 2019

Until 2015, international carrier voice traffic had increased in each of the previous 60 years.

In each of the past four years, paid call volumes have slumped, with no end in sight. International carriers had already suffered from revenue stagnation due to slow traffic growth and falling prices.

The unprecedented occasion of outright traffic decline, however, marked a new and depressing turning point. In reviewing developments from the past year, three major trends stand out.

The Global Internet, Post-Pandemic

Will COVID-19 leave a lasting mark on the global internet?

Based on discussions and surveys with dozens of network operators around the globe, we believe that COVID-related expansion in internet traffic and bandwidth is largely a one-off phenomenon. It seems likely that the trends we've observed in recent years will largely continue.

Between 2015 & 2019 Lit Capacity More Than Tripled on Many Routes

Demand for international bandwidth is more than doubling every two years. To meet this demand, companies are investing in existing networks and in new infrastructure.

Three New Trends in Voice Pricing

Until 2015, international carrier voice traffic had increased in each of the previous 60 years.

But for the past four years, paid call volumes have slumped with no end in sight. International carriers had already suffered from revenue stagnation due to slow traffic growth and falling prices. The unprecedented occasion of outright traffic decline, however, marked a new and depressing turning point.

End-User Traffic Rising, More Traffic Migrating to Private Networks

What's on the horizon for the global internet? We have a few ideas.

International internet bandwidth and traffic growth has gradually slowed in recent years, but remains brisk. And IP transit price declines continue globally, but significant regional differences in prices persist around the world.

The combined effects of new internet-enabled devices, growing broadband penetration in developing markets, higher broadband access rates, and bandwidth-intensive applications will continue to fuel strong internet traffic growth.

295 Tbps: Internet Traffic and Capacity in 2017

International internet capacity growth rates have fallen steadily for many years, and annual growth rates have settled in the low-30 percent range.

But even with the declining pace of growth, 196 Tbps of new international internet capacity was deployed between 2013 and 2017, bringing global international internet capacity to 295 Tbps.

Outlook: The Global Internet in 2017

Where is the global internet headed and how is it going to get there?

There are a few ways to answer that question.

Connectivity Trends in Asian Markets

I recently attended the first BKNIX Peering Forum in Bangkok, where I presented on Connectivity Trends in Asian Markets.  The presentation covered international used bandwidth in Asia, submarine cable investments, as well as wholesale transport and IPT prices.

A New Submarine Cable Construction Boom in Latin America

TeleGeography recently traveled to Rio de Janeiro to attend Capacity Latin America, where I moderated the panel “Laying the Foundation – Building the Necessary Steps to Encourage Future Investments in the Latin American Region.” My colleagues and I had the chance to catch up with players across the submarine cable industry to identify the most important trends in the Latin American market. One of the key takeaways from discussions we had at the conference was the re-emergence of a submarine cable construction boom.
