Telefónica Móviles is now, and will continue be the dominant wireless operator in the Spanish and Portuguese speaking world, according to In-Stat/MDR.

In-Stat/MDR reports that the wireless arm of European wireline and wireless operator Telefónica has been able to spot an opportunity that none of the other major operators have been able to capitalize on, and, as a result, is the fifth largest operator in the world, as measured by number of subscribers. In-Stat/MDR has also found that: - Telefónica Móviles is the 2nd largest CDMA carrier in the world. - The operator had over 66 million wireless subscribers, worldwide, at the end of the first half of 2004, more than half of which are in Latin America, and counts over 34% of Latin Americas wireless subscriber population as its own. In fact, Telefónica Móviles has more wireless subscribers in Brazil than in its own home market of Spain. - Latin America represents Telefónica Móviles future, as near-saturation levels have caused growth to fall off significantly in its home market of Spain. - Due to Telefónica Móviles desire to build upon its own brand image, In-Stat/MDR predicts that the operator will not launch MVNOs in Latin America.
