Fixed broadband lines in Bolivia will increase from 900,000 in 2020 to 1.8 million by 2025. Moreover, Fixed broadband penetration of population will also increase from 8.0% in 2020 to an estimated 14.3% by 2025, supported by continued growth in cable and FTTH subscriptions.
FTTH will have the largest 61.7% share of the total fixed broadband subscriptions in 2020, and will remain the leading broadband technology. It will account for an estimated 63.8% share of the total broadband lines by 2025.
