Mobile Sector Shows Fastest Growth in Albania Telecom Market, States BuddeComm in Its Report Available at MarketPublishers.com30 Mar 2017 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – Albania’s telecom market is witnessing a decline in the penetration rate of fixed-line telephony as subscribers are shifting to mobile solutions, along with continued government incentives to enhance broadband availability and access nation-wise. The Albanian small economy is highly reliant on the neighbouring Greece and Italy.
These factors have a noticeable influence on the domestic telecom sector, with revenue growth being in ongoing decline as consumers cut back on discretionary expenses. Yet penetration rates in the broadband and fixed-line sectors are still at low levels according to the European standards, hence, there are lucrative opportunities for future investment in the upgrades of the national network infrastructure to help boost the country’s economic development via digital offerings and IP-based services and technologies.
Whilst such investment in the fixed-line infrastructure should be fostered by the regulatory authority and the government, consumers are projected to keep on opting for mobile networks for voice and data services in the short run; this indicates that the mobile sector is expected to be the rapidly growing market segment in the offing.
The country has long looked toward accession to the EU which has done good to its telecoms sector by means of closer investigation of its regulatory structure and via the injection of funding to support the modernisation of infrastructure.
