Suriname Telecoms Market Overview & Statistics Report Out Now

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Suriname - Telecoms Market Overview & Statistics" report to their offering.

Suriname's telecom infrastructure is reasonable compared with the rest of Latin America, and compares favourably with the country's other social and economic indicators. Teledensity is slightly lower than average for the region, while mobile penetration is slightly higher. Internet and broadband uptake, however, lag far behind. Until December 2007, when competing operators Digicel and Uniqua launched GSM services, state-owned Telesur was the exclusive telecoms provider in all areas except dial-up Internet access, where it had one competitor. Telesur is the only provider of broadband, which is exorbitantly expensive, particularly in view of the country's low GDP per capita. This report provides an overview of the country's telecom sector accompanied by relevant statistics and analyses.
