概要

中東地域のほとんどの国では、モバイルネットワークによって既に達成されている広い範囲を補完するため、固定ブロードバンドインフラの範囲を拡大するための取り組みが続けられています。固定ブロードバンドインフラの拡大は、一般に都市部を中心とした民間部門によって行われていますが、社会、企業、政府に影響を与えるデジタルトランスフォーメーションの実現に向けた国の支援もかなり行われています。

当レポートでは、中東諸国の固定ブロードバンド市場について調査分析し、主要統計、COVID-19の影響、国別の市場分析、主要企業などについて、体系的な情報を提供しています。

Fixed broadband deployment responds to pandemic demands

Most countries in the Middle East region continue to work towards expanding the reach of fixed broadband infrastructure, complementing the wider reach already achieved by mobile networks. The expansion of fixed broadband infrastructure is generally undertaken by private sector players focussed on urban areas, though there is also considerable state support towards creating a digital transformation affecting societies, businesses, and governments.

The pandemic has provided a significant impetus in this regard. To a greater or lesser extent, a large proportion of people in these countries has been obliged to work from home. With bans on travel and restrictions on social interactions, people have looked to online entertainment. Schools and universities have moved to online learning and digital classrooms. Businesses have transitioned to arrangements whereby employees, where practical, work from home and perform tasks online. With the closure of retail outlets and other restrictions, a greater proportion of transactions is undertaken online, via e-commerce or m-commerce.

In all, these various forces are expediting the pace of existing national broadband plans which have been set in train over the last few years. Some of these plans have long-term schedules (through to 2030 or even 2040), are supported by state funding and are generally being deployed by incumbent telcos or their subsidiaries created for the purpose.

A transition from DSL to fibre-based networks continues in many Middle Eastern markets. As 5G is being ramped up by the regions' mobile network operators, these fixed networks are being connected to mobile base stations to provide the necessary backhaul.

Key developments

  • Countries in the Middle East are investing in fixed networks to provide the infrastructure underpinning digital transformation, and the long-term development of knowledge-based economies.
  • Investment in fibre has propelled the UAE as the top ranking country in the region (16th globally) for fixed broadband data rates, at 189Mb/s as of September 2021.
  • Qatar's substantial fixed broadband network based on GigaNet fibre has held it in good stead during the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Saudi Arabia climbs in the Digital Infrastructure Index league table, and continues to implement strategies as part of its the Vision 2030.
  • In Israel, the Universal Service Obligations on Bezeq and HOT Telecom have helped extend broadband availability to 99% of premises.
  • Bahrain is pursuing its long-term Economic Vision 2030 strategy, aimed at developing digital services across numerous sectors, including e-government, e-health, e-commerce, and e-banking.
