Iran Telecoms Sector to Undergo Transformation to 2021, States BuddeComm in Its Topical Report Available at MarketPublishers.com11 Apr 2017 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – Iran is presently implementing its 6th Development Plan (2016 – 2021) and contains a range of measures to transform the country’s telecoms sector, such as the digitisation of the national school and government networks, among others.
Mobile data services in Iran have become available, however, capture a small share of the overall revenue. This is projected to expand over time as mobile data services increasingly contribute to prospective revenue growth, owing to the launch of 3G/HSPA and 4G LTE services. In the recent past, WiMAX services in the country were substituted by TDD-LTE services by the 2 operators, ISP MobinNet and Irancell.
There is continuous Fixed-Mobile Conversion (FMC) taking place in Iran. The growth in fixed lines has been slowing in the past few years, with mobile subscriptions being on the increase.
The number of Internet users is growing owing to increased accessibility caused by competition and government incentives aimed at enhancing ICT accessibility. Iran has been developing its own national intranet, known as the National Information Network (NIN), which is set to only host the content compatible with Islamic values. The NIN is expected to complement the Internet and operates on the Iranian fibre network.
Mobile Communications Iran (MCI), Telecommunication Company of Iran (TCI), MTN Irancell, Rafsanjan Industrial Complex (Taliya), Tamin Telecom (Rightel), Shatel Group, and MobinNet, among others, are the leading players in the national telecom marketplace.
