A small wealthy nation in South East Asia, with a population of a little over 400,000, telecommunications infrastructure and services throughout Brunei are of a generally high standard, bolstered by a high GDP per capita.
Brunei is ranked 10th with a Telecoms Maturity Index score of 47. Brunei is ranked 3rd in the Market Challenger category out of 16 countries. (BuddeComm’s “Asian Telecoms Maturity Index”, is an index (on a scale between 0 and 100) that measures and ranks the relative maturity of the telecoms industry in all of the 34 countries in Asia.)
Fixed line penetration has seen a slow downhill slide over the past ten years. It has fallen as mobile broadband has taken over as the driver of growth in the telecoms access market.
Fixed broadband penetration in Brunei has increased moderately over the past few years from a relatively low base of subscribers by international comparisons. Slow to moderate growth is predicted over the next five years to 2023.
Slower growth is predicted in the mobile subscriber market over the next five years to 2023. The market will be constrained from higher growth due to strong local competition and a further maturing market.
Brunei has seen a very strong increase in mobile broadband penetration over the past five years. Slower growth is predicted over the next five years to 2023 as growth subsides in a maturing market. The mobile broadband market will be driven by a rising level of mobile subscribers, falling levels of fixed line subscribers and increasingly faster speeds offered by the mobile operators.

Analyst: Phil Harpur
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.
