Sydney, August 19, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE)-This edition of the BuddeComm report, just released, provides an overview of the latest and key trends in the telecommunications market. — https://www.budde.com.au/Research/Saudi-Arabia-Telecoms-Mobile-and-Broadband-Statistics-and-Analyses/?utm_source=GNW
A key component of this was the expansion of 5G networks, which reached about half of the population and the majority of cities by mid-2021.
The highly competitive mobile sector is serviced by the Saudi Telecom Company (STC), Mobilly, Zain KSA, and four licensed MVNOs. MNOs have focused their investment on upgrading LTE infrastructure and further developing 5G. It aims to generate additional revenue from mobile data services and contribute to the Vision 2030 program.
An ongoing pandemic is increasing the number of people working from home and attending school during periods of restricted travel. This has stimulated the growth of mobile data traffic, and the government has encouraged non-cash transactions and helped develop the vast e-commerce market.
Saudi Arabia’s fixed broadband penetration remains relatively low, but with a concentration of fiber infrastructure, Saudi Arabia has developed one of the fastest services in the region.
BuddeComm states that the outbreak of a pandemic continues to have a significant impact on production and supply chains around the world. During this time, the telecommunications sector can experience slower production of mobile and ICT equipment to varying degrees, but network operators procure the equipment they need and manage workflows as they maintain and upgrade their existing infrastructure. It can also be difficult to do. In some countries, overall progress towards 5G may also be postponed or slowed down. On the consumer side, spending on telecommunications services can be impacted by massive unemployment and the consequent restrictions on disposable income. In contrast, demand for mobile and broadband services is expected to increase as more citizens need online services for work, entertainment, education, telemedicine, and social purposes.
