According to the Latin American director of 5G Americas, José Otero, up to 90% of Latin America’s internet connections will be made through mobile broadband by 2022. By that time, over 60% of connections will have access to high-speed LTE service as well.
Otero estimates that approximately 70% of internet connections in the region are currently using mobile broadband. He also insists that 5G connections will begin to appear in the region starting in 2020, especially if governments are willing to help.
5G Americas is a nonprofit based in Washington DC made up of telecommunications industry titans. The organization works to promote the spread of LTE and high-speed mobile broadband connections worldwide.
