Marshall Islands - Telecoms Market Overview & Statistics


Due to the limited level of market activity in this country, BuddeComm is now publishing this report on an "On Demand" basis. Please Contact Us for more information.

Marshall Islands National Telecommunications Authority (NTA) has a monopoly on the provision of all telecom services in the Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI). A digital TDMA 800 cellular service includes both fixed and mobile services and provides telephone service to some of the other islands in the Kwajalein Atoll where no fixed-line service is available. A GSM mobile network was launched in 2006. A potential agreement involving the Federated States of Micronesia and RMI proposes to run a fibre optic, submarine cable from Guam to Pohnpei, Kwajalein and Majuro. Please note that this report is updated very infrequently due to limited availability of information on the local telecoms market. Limited statistics are available.

Paul Budde and his team executed this perfectly. Paul also provided us with very high quality reports on every aspect of the project, including an amazingly thorough and actionable report on the conference presentations and discussion."
