3G Technology to Grow Rapidly in Honduras

A study predicts that 3G will cover 30% of the Honduran telecommunications market by 2014.

Tuesday, April 14, 2009

A study by Pyramid Research, published by TMCnet.com, examined the current state of the 3G sector and found it covers only 2% of the telecommunications market in Honduras in 2009 and makes a 5-year projection predicting a growth of 5%.

The article indicated that the analyst and co-author of the report, Jose Magana, said: "Mobile penetration, which ended close to 87% for 2008, will advance by 109% for 2014. Currently, 3G subscriptions represent less than 2% of the total, but Pyramid anticipates that it will be more than 30% by 2014."
