Kuwait has one of the highest mobile penetration rates in the world and market saturation. To capitalise on this; the operators are building extensive LTE networks, developing 5G and introducing mobile broadband content and services.

The existence of this substantial mobile infrastructure places Kuwait in good stead to take advantage of the opportunities offered by the evolution to 5G. In 2019 we are seeing 5G developments accelerate in Kuwait with the operators beginning to formulate offerings around 5G service packages and devices.

While Kuwait's mobile sector shows considerable progress; the country's fixed broadband penetration is one of the lowest in the region. The Kuwaiti government is however focusing on building fixed broadband networks and ultimately this sector offers a potential future growth opportunity for both the operators and government. Improvements to the fixed broadband infrastructure will assist to grow markets such as e-commerce, along with smart infrastructure development, start-ups and M2M.

This report provides extensive information on Kuwait's telecoms market and provides key industry statistics as well as information and insights relating to fixed and mobile infrastructure, subscribers, regulations and major players.

  • The three major operators of Zain Kuwait, VIVA and Ooredoo are all offering LTE services as well as exploring 5G opportunities.
  • There is a high ownership of smart phones in Kuwait.
  • Improvements to fibre-broadband infrastructure are underway.
