Mobile services remain competitive in Iraq, despite the ongoing civil tension

The ongoing civil war occurring in Iraq is taking its toll on essential services, but despite this predicament the country continues to maintain a functioning mobile sector in many geographic areas. Some mobile network sites are currently unavailable due to seizure by rebel forces so the operators are concentrating their efforts on maintaining services at the sites they are able to readily access.
Three mobile operators ensure the market remains competitive including Zain Iraq, Asiacell and Korek Telecom. Competition may increase further with the Communication and Media Commission (CMC) calling for Expressions of Interest regarding a 4th mobile license at the end of 2015, which had not been decided as of mid-2016.
Generally speaking, mobile communication is a very popular platform in Iraq, and as a result the fixed telecom sector has slowed. The challenging market conditions presented by Iraq however resulted in both Asiacell and Zain reporting recent declines in their mobile subscriber base. Korek Telecom on the other hand saw a rise in its subscriber numbers and it has been steadily acquiring market share over the past few years.
While growth in the Iraqi telecoms sector is currently influenced by the serious civil unrest occurring in the country; it is expected that there will be opportunities for grow in both the mobile communication and mobile broadband markets in the future as well READ MORE >
