Uruguay, a Latin American country, attracts terminators with low competition in the field of GSM termination and a well-developed telecommunications market. Average voip rates uruguay are $0.07 per minute while local cellular communication is inexpensive. But what about the Internet services sector?
Uruguay has one of the highest rates of Internet penetration in the region, which is 72%. There are about 2.5 million Internet users in the country, with a large percentage using broadband access through computers. Therefore, Uruguay has a well-developed fixed broadband network.
Uruguay is also one of the world's countries where Internet access services are not provided through a cable modem. But the services of wireless and fiber optic connection are widespread. Among the main Internet providers in Uruguay are Antel and Dedicado.
Antel has recently launched the Antel Fiber-to-the-Premises program. Under this program, the company seeks to provide the nation-wide coverage with fiber-optic networks by 2020. At the same time, in 2012 the cable submarine system Bicentenario was installed, and the Tannat cable in 2017. These measures have significantly improved the capacity of Internet networks in the country.
As of 2017, the average download speed in Uruguay is 9.5 Mbps. This is the highest rate in Latin America. The country ranked first in the list of Latin American countries, ahead of Chile where the average speed is 9.3 Mbps, which is sufficient to efficiently terminate voice traffic, using the multi-channel GoIP equipment.
