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 2023 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 generally strong growth across the telecom sector has brought with it a flurry of investment interest and activity. The telecommunications market in Malaysia experienced privatisation in all facets of the industry and a general opening up of the market with a significant number of new licences being granted.

I have both worked with Paul and valued his opinion on many occasions. Following, his many comments on the telecommunications industry has been rewarding and insightful. His reports have always been of value and help guide us through the maze of jargon, politics and defined the real road map of this complex industry.
