The Dominican Republic reached 8.9 million mobile lines at the end of December 2018, up around 2 percent year on year, according to the latest update from the country's telecommunications watchdog Indotel. Some three in four (75%) of the lines were prepay and the remaining 25 percent were postpay, while Claro (America Movil) continued as market leader with a 56 percent share, followed by Altice and Viva with the remaining 38 percent and 6 percent respectively. Around two-thirds of the lines (67%) have data access, the vast majority (98%) residential rather than business accounts.
