DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Pakistan - Fixed Broadband Market - Statistics and Analyses" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
Despite the efforts of the government to stimulate growth in the internet segment of the telecommunications market, for a long period it has remained a fairly sluggish component of Pakistan's overall telecoms sector. The data and internet service sector has been opened up for private operators to invest and operate services in the country.
Fixed broadband penetration in Pakistan remains very low mainly due to the dominance of the mobile platform. Also, the limited and declining number of fixed lines in Pakistan is restricting more widespread development of fixed broadband. Penetration increased from 0.4% in 2010 to 1.9% in 2014, but then dropped 1.0% in 2019. Over the next five years to 2024 low growth is expected from this small base.
DSL dominates the fixed broadband market. Its market share has been falling over the past five years. HFC and FTTH have seen rising numbers, however each still constitute for a very low market share of the overall fixed broadband market.
