Yemen Telecommunications and Broadband Reports

Yemen Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband, Statistics and Analyses
Yemen is currently an unpredictable market that faces serious civic issues. The recent conflict has put a halt on much of the progress for telecoms for the time being. However despite these challenges there are some positive signs for the future. In mid 2016 for example, it was announced that TeleYemen had joined a consortium that would see the build-out of a new submarine cable, due for completion in 2018.

Broadband and Consumer E-Commerce in Yemen

May 2019 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 Iraq, Syria and Yemen where levels are below other countries. 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 year.
