Feasibility study on rural telecoms development – Paraguay

countries: Paraguay
key-subject: rural telecommunications development, feasibility study, revenue projection, financing, tariffs, interconnection
client-type: government, financial institution

In the context of sector reform and under World Bank sponsorship, Intelecon worked with the telecommunications ministry to devise a strategy on how to support rural telecommunications development. We investigated the rural demand and projected the revenue potential in order to assess the commercial viability for rural private operators and identified financing needs. Intelecon recommended a revised tariff structure, favourable interconnect for rural operators and a rural telecommunications fund.
