Termination of voice traffic in Latin America is considered a fairly promising business. Ecuador is one of the most attractive destinations since there is a fairly high rate, which is an average of 9 cents. If you pick up the optimal tariff plan, you can earn over $100 from one VoIP equipment channel.
The population of Ecuador is more than 16.6 million, while the penetration of mobile communications is 89%. The region has a low density of fixed-line traffic as it has become very expensive to install telephone lines in remote and mountainous areas due to topographic problems. In addition, Ecuador's telecommunications structure is not well funded. This has become a prerequisite for the active development of the mobile sector.
The cellular communications market in Ecuador is actually a duopoly. The two main players are America Movil, which operates under the Claro brand, and Movistar. Claro's services are used by about 9 million subscribers, while the Movistar subscriber base consists of more than 4.5 million users. CNT is the third GSM operator that covers the minimum market share (0.8 million connections). The country receives a lot of international traffic, with the originating companies offering up to 50,000 minutes for the final termination in Ecuador.
