2020 Analysis of Jordan's Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband Sectors - ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN--()--The "Jordan - Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband - Statistics and Analyses" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

This report provides statistics and analysis on the key sectors of Jordan's telecom market, presenting an overview of the regulatory environment, the fixed network operators and services, telecom infrastructure, mobile operators and mobile infrastructure, supported by statistics. The report includes a range of subscriber forecasts through to 2024.

The publisher notes that the outbreak of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) in 2020 is having a significant impact on production and supply chains all around the world. During this time, the telecoms sector may experience a downturn in mobile device and ICT equipment production and a decline in consumer spending on telecoms services. Overall progress towards 5G may also be postponed or slowed down in some countries.

Recent Developments

  • Jordan is a unique market in many ways, due to its huge population growth in the last decade and the influx of refugees into the country.
  • Jordan has long been recognised for having a highly taxed telecom sector.
  • MVNOs have struggled in Jordan's competitive mobile market, which is dominated by 3 major regional players.
  • The uptake of 4G grew quickly in Jordan and by 2019 penetration had reached over 90%.
  • Umniah and JEPCO partnered together in 2019 to deploy a fibre-broadband network.

Jordan is host to a growing number of ICT companies and has emerged as a technology start up hub for the Middle East, made possible due to a focus on ICT education and a regulatory environment which is conducive to ICT investment. It has also made great progress in the digital financial services area with support from the Central Bank of Jordan. To support further digital development; the government recently launched a Ministry of Digital Economy and Entrepreneurship.

High-speed, reliable and comprehensive telecoms infrastructure is important for underpinning Jordan's digital economy goals. Jordan already has a highly developed mobile sector which is led by three major regional players, and it is well supported by 4G LTE networks.

The launch of 4G services led to a growth in data revenues for the mobile operators and they are continuing to expand on these data offerings as a key focus area moving forward. The industry is also preparing itself for the next wave of developments relating to 5G and IoT/M2M.

Jordan is working towards improving its fixed broadband infrastructure, as its current penetration levels are still comparatively low. A national broadband network based on fibre is being deployed, however the majority of subscribers still utilise DSL services.

Industry forecasts contained in this report have not taken Coronavirus into consideration as it is yet largely unknown what the long-term impact will be.
