The Iran Telecommunications Report provides industry professionals and strategists, corporate analysts, telecommunication associations, government departments and regulatory bodies with independent forecasts and competitive intelligence on Iran's telecommunications industry.

BMI View:

Iran’s mobile penetration has exceeded 100%. Although the fixed-line and internet sectors continue to record positive growth, they remain restricted by tight government regulation, censorship and underinvestment in network infrastructure. All three sectors present significant growth opportunities but we expect the mobile sector to continue to outperform because of superior network investments and competition between the operators.

Key data:

- Quarterly mobile growth averaged 3.7% in the 12 months to June 2012.

- We have revised our internet and broadband data for Iran to reflect new data from the ITU, as well as the impact of the launch of the first phase of the National Data Network (NDN),
expected in September 2012.

- Iran’s mobile ARPU is unchanged this quarter despite growing market saturation that has the potential to increase downward pressure READ MORE >
