Sustitución entre Telefonía Fija y Móvil en Chile


  • M. Soledad Arellano
  • José Miguel Benavente



En este trabajo se estudia el grado de sustitución entre la telefonía fija y móvil en Chile. Los resultados muestran que la posesión de al menos un teléfono móvil en el hogar reduce el gasto promedio mensual en teléfono fijo en aproximadamente $5400 (31%). A pesar de lo anterior, el cambio estimado en el gasto en telefonía fija no es estadísticamente relevante en la decisión de adquirir un celular. La metodología empleada combina modelos de variable binaria con modelos dinámicos de panel. Se pone especial cuidado en controlar en forma apropiada por los efectos de selección y endogeneidad, normalmente presente en estos casos. De no controlar por ellos, la conclusión sería exactamente la contraria.
