Malaysia Telecommunications Report Q2 2016

Latest Updates & Industry Developments

Based on data reported by Malaysia's mobile network operators, Maxis and DiGi and Telenor-backedCelcom, and by the country's telecoms sector regulator, we now believe that the number of mobilesubscriptions reached 43.45mn at the end of 2015, equivalent to a penetration rate of 143%. During theyear, the three established operators appear to have lost customers to the smaller players, a trend whichcoincided with the continued phasing-out of unused prepaid subscriptions. We now predict that thenumber of mobile subscriptions will rise to 45.34mn by the end of 2020. Growth across the market as awhole will be driven by migration to 3G/4G services and by a trend towards the use of multiple SIMconnecteddevices. Mobile ARPUs will continue to decline gradually, as price competition underminesthe benefits of moving to premium services.

In the wireline market, the main focus of growth will continue to be on the development of fibre-basedhigh-speed access and backbone networks. Higher capacity wireline broadband infrastructure willfacilitate the deployment of new services, including online video. By 2020 we predict there will be8.284mn broadband accesses, up from 6.9mn at the end of 2015.
