There has been strong growth in Malaysia’s telecom sector over the last decade, but the growth has not been consistent across the sector. The number of fixed-line services, after growing rapidly at first, had been relatively static for around ten years; then we saw clear evidence of a shrinking subscriber base. The mobile market by contrast has been more spectacular, racing to more than 40 million subscribers by early 2013, a penetration of over 140% and up from just 6 million subscribers in 2000. After starting off slowly, broadband internet has been expanding strongly in recent years and by mid-2013 had reached a remarkable 67% household penetration. This report takes a broad look at the growth in Malaysia’s telecommunications sector and where it has reached. The report also describes how the country has continued to allocate capital to invest in information technology and telecommunications infrastructure despite setbacks caused by periods of difficult regional and global economic conditions. Note that more details on the telecom market segments and sector operators are provided in other Malaysia reports.
