Paraguay is one of the least-developed telecom markets in LatAm, largely marred by delays and lack of clarity on the policy and regulations front. However, a sectoral revival seems more likely on back of major announcements by Conatel in recent years.


  • Among the major focus areas for the regulator at this current time are digital switchover and new spectrum allocations.
  • The regulator’s move to amend the Telecommunications Act No. 642/95 to make it more relevant to the current market dynamics is a big step towards revamping the sector.
