Egypt Mobile Market Report

Egypt launched third generation (3G) mobile services in 2007, following the award of the country’s third mobile licence the previous year. The record price that was paid for the licence indicated the potential that is seen in the Egyptian mobile market, and the penetration rate has indeed multiplied since and broke the 100% barrier in 2011. Currently the strongest growth is in mobile broadband services, which offers the network operators new revenue streams. A fourth mobile license may be tendered in 2013.

This report is an overview of the Egyptian Mobile Market, with statistics and forecasts about the major developments in the market and profiles of the companies involved, including 3G mobile broadband growth and ARPU (Average Revenue Per User) trends for the major mobile operators. It also contains an in-depth analysis of the third mobile license valuation and market forecasts to 2013 and 2016.

New Report about Australia Telecommunications

This report provides 160 statistical tables for Internet, broadband and all aspects of the digital economy and telecommunications in Australia

Australia is among the leading countries whose government is actively investigating the social and economic benefits that can be achieved through the deployment of a mainly fibre-based telecommunications infrastructure. Services that depend on high quality broadband infrastructure include tele-health, e-education, e-business, digital media, e-government, smart meters, and so forth.

The decision from the Australian government to launch a $43 billion national FttH broadband network is a clear indication that they believe broadband is an essential telecommunications infrastructure. A digital economy requires an open broadband infrastructure, and there is widespread support for this visionary plan in Australia.
