Malaysia Telecommunications Sector Discussed in New BuddeComm Research Report Published at

24 Jan 2014 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – While still in an ongoing development mode, Malaysia’s telecom sector has undergone an essential restructuring process, supported by progressive reforms introduced by the government. The launch of the Sixth Malaysia Plan in 1991 made a good start. During the past decade, Malaysia’s telecom market has been on a fast growth path, with the government’s increased attention to the country’s ICT development being its particular feature. All the while, the telecom companies have been vying for a market share in a highly competitive and dynamic marketplace.

The mobile sector has been developing most progressively, with close to 45 million active subscribers with a penetration rate reaching 150% by end-2013. The momentum is set to be maintained in the oncoming years. Meantime, following a strong increase in the number of subscribers in 2010, the fixed-line market has begun to decline steadily; nevertheless, the sector remains important for the creation and operation of the national telecom infrastructure. There has been a surge in high speed broadband internet which began to take off in 2008; this resulted in over 6 million broadband subscribers by 2013-end, with most of them being wireless.

New research report “Malaysia - Telecoms, Mobile, Broadband and Forecasts” prepared by BuddeComm draws up a comprehensive and unbiased picture of the Malaysian telecom sector.

The study gives an overview of the market at the national level, providing a keen insight into its historical development and current performance. The report presents a detailed, all-round analysis of the regulatory environment; delves deep into the telecom infrastructure; grants access to the broadband market; examines the digital media landscape, including coverage of the broadcasting market; as well as explores the universe of mobile communications. Furthermore, the report is enriched with extensive forecasts (up to 2015 and through 2020) for subscriber growth across the key market segments, such as fixed-line services, broadband internet services, and mobile services.
