Syria’s telecoms market impacted by the ongoing civil war

Syria’s telecom sector continues to be impacted by the ongoing civil war. Reports include instances of information warfare, proposed sanctions against telecom companies, damage to telecoms infrastructure and loss of connectivity to the global Internet. The deteriorating situation is having an impact on market development with regulatory developments delayed. However given the utility nature of telecoms, services are likely to be restored once fighting ceases.

Fixed-line services remain the monopoly of state-owned Syrian Telecommunications Establishment (STE), which has upgraded its infrastructure to support delivery of broadband services. However the ongoing civil has damaged infrastructure, resulting in the need for repairs.

Broadband subscriber data indicated strong growth although the ongoing civil war is likely to impact future growth prospects. Recognising the potential of applying ICT to improve both social and economic development, Syria has taken steps to develop a digital economy. E-government services are available, with a national e-government policy in place to guide developments. READ MORE >
