Malaysia - Telecoms Infrastructure, Operators, Regulations - Statistics and Analyses

Malaysia has a competitive telecom sector that has thrived on the progressive opening up and reform of the local market. The changing commercial landscape has seen the significant restructuring of all the main players over time. Supported by the efforts of the government, there has been a general rationalisation of what was seen as an overcrowded' mobile operator market.
The country's telecom sector, whilst still expanding and developing, has undergone a period of consolidation with its telecom companies operating in an ever increasingly competitive and changing market. Substantial government participation in ICT development has also been a particular characteristic of the Malaysian market. It has strongly backed the roll-out of a national broadband network.
The penetration of fixed lines in Malaysia continues to fall as the mobile segment continues to expand and dominate the market, especially the mobile broadband segment. The fixed line market is predicted to gradually decline over the next five years to 2022 as mobile and mobile broadband penetration continue to increase.
