Executive Summary

Demand for Arabic content increasing as broadband use extends

Telecoms and fixed-line

Developing regulatory systems in the telecoms sector of the Middle East have improved conditions for competitors although in almost all markets the main competitors to fixed-line incumbents are mobile network operators. Cross-border co-operation is becoming increasingly evident with regulators working together to improve services for end users and operators working together to deploy two regional terrestrial cables. Broadband continues to be the focus of incumbent operators as fixed-line voice revenue continues to decline and governments encourage deployment of faster speeds to underpin development of the Internet economy.

Internet and Broadband

Broadband use is increasing rapidly in the wealthier countries of the Arab Middle East due to infrastructure based competition from mobile network operators. This in turn is driving demand for Arabic content. The speeds currently available in the Middle East is opening up access to high bandwidth forms of digital content, such as Video-on-Demand (VoD). Tough competition exists in the region’s flourishing pan-regional satellite TV market with over 400 FTA channels available.

Mobile operations

Recent slow growth is indicative of the maturing Middle East mobile markets. High mobile subscription levels are due to multiple SIM card ownership, a predominantly prepaid user base and lack of mobile number portability in many markets. Perhaps more indicative of the mature market is the emergence of MVNOs which can better cater to specific market segments. In the face of strong competition operators are diversifying into fixed markets or other countries. Other operators have voiced renewed focus on achieving operational efficiencies although the impending spending required to build and operate faster mobile broadband networks will make this target increasingly challenging.

Purchase with Confidence

As you know, I have resigned from the Labor Ministry and have decided not to re-contest the seat of Charlton at the next election – both for personal reasons.

Before leaving Parliament, I particularly wish to record my thanks to you for your generous and constructive participation in the deliberations that generated significant economic policy reforms for the Australian community. Continuous economic transformation is a key challenge that faces all Governments.

The development of sound public policy should always be contestable. Ultimately, good and equitable outcomes are not concessions to any particular interest group, but the careful balancing of interests to create the greatest possible benefit for the nation. You have contributed to that, and I sincerely thank you for it.

Greg Combet, Former Minister for Climate Change, Industry and Innovation
