The UAE generally leads the Middle East Arab countries in ICT rankings, with a well-developed and technologically advanced telecom sector and high levels of mobile and broadband penetration. The UAE has two fixed network and mobile operators: the original incumbent Etisalat and operator du, which launched services in February 2007. Fixed-line competition increased recently with the TRA announcing in late 2015 that fixed network sharing had finally been implemented across the country with both operators now able to offer and market services in locations previously withheld.
Etisalat is one of the most profitable telecom organisations in the region; it is a large contributor to UAE’s economic development, (after petroleum) and one of the largest companies in the Middle East. Besides being the incumbent telco in the UAE, Etisalat operates in several other African and Asian countries.
This report provides a concise overview, backed by statistics, of the telecoms market, the regulatory background, and the fixed-line sector.
