Kyrgyzstan Telecoms Market
Overview and Statistics Report
Armenia’s telecommunications sector is small but growing.
With over 700,000 fixed-line subscribers for a population of nearly
4 million people, the level of investment in infrastructure and new
services has begun to increase. There are, however, major structural
issues to be addressed in the sector. Although ArmenTel, the country’s
national telecom provider, was granted exclusive rights to the provision
of all telecommunications services in Armenia until 2013 (apart from
data services), a second mobile operator launched its network in mid-2005
after the government awarded a licence to K-Telecom. This report looks
at the overall state of telecommunications in Armenia and provides a
selection of pertinent market statistics. See summary and table of

March 2009 Review
There is a wide disparity in
telecommunications development in the Middle East region, ranging
from Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), which have levels
of Internet and mobile use not dissimilar to those in Western
Europe, to Iran, Syria and Yemen where levels are below Sri Lanka
or Vietnam. Some of this disparity is caused by differing
economic circumstances but political and social attitudes,
corruption levels and economic openness also play a part.
There are signs of greater openness in the industry across the
region but change is coming slowly. Several countries are moving
towards greater competition in the industry and to privatisation
of government owned operators but mostly at a glacial pace. An
exception is Bahrain, where the government has passed the
appropriate laws, introduced a relatively independent regulator,
announced a liberalisation timetable and awarded a second GSM
mobile licence (on schedule according to the timetable) all in
the space of less than a year.
Mobile use has been the fastest growing area of
telecommunications with regional growth rates around 50% per
