Ecuador’s Growing Mobile Subscriber base
Ecuador’s mobile service providers have grown their subscriber base to approximately 11.3 million compared to 9.65 million at this time last year, according to telecommunications supervisory body Supertel.
Porta, a unit of Mexico’s America Movil, continues to dominate the market with 7.67 million subscribers, followed by Movistar Ecuador, owned by Spain's Telefonica, with 2.95 million users, and locally-owned Alegro PCS with 672,366 customers.
During September, the three mobile operators added 154,164 net new subscribers between them, and at the end of the month there were a total of 10.45 million GSM subscribers, or 92.5% of the country’s total.
Ecuador’s mobile landscape is not only becoming more populous, but also more sophisticated; in late October, Movistar announced the launching of a futbol portal on its Ecuadorean network.
