With its widespread application of modern technologies such as fibre optics, wireless transmission, digitalisation and satellite services, Malaysia has built one of the more advanced telecom networks in the developing world. The country has a national objective to see Malaysia ranked as a developed country by the year 2020.
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 2024 as mobile and mobile broadband penetration continue to increase.
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 Malaysian data centre market has seen strong recent growth which is predicted to continue over the next five years, growth has been strong from both local and international providers. Local Malaysian telcos are consolidating their data centre footprint, by leasing data centre space in third party data centres, a trend more evident in developed markets such as Singapore.
