Bangladesh - Telecoms, Mobile, Broadband and Forecasts 2013 Report

(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Dublin - Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Bangladesh - Telecoms, Mobile, Broadband and Forecasts" report to their offering.

This report provides a comprehensive overview of the trends and developments in the telecommunications and digital media markets in Bangladesh.

Subjects covered include: - Key Statistics; - Market and Industry Overviews and Analyses; - Regulatory Environment and Development; - Major Telecom Players (fixed and mobile); - Infrastructure; - Broadcasting (including Digital Media); - Mobile Voice and Data Market; - Internet, including VoIP and IPTV; - Broadband (fixed and mobile); - Scenario Forecasts (fixed-line, mobile and broadband subscribers) for 2015 and 2020.

Key Highlights Bangladesh's mobile market passed 100 million subscribers in early 2013 as penetration reached 67%. This had been preceded by a five-year period in which the country saw mobile subscriber numbers grew almost 20 times.

Of the mobile operators, GrameenPhone was far and away the leader, claiming 41 million subscribers, or 41% of the total mobile subscriber base, by end-2012, despite the best commercial efforts of its five competitors.Airtel Bangladesh and Robi Axiata had both seen rapid growth in their respective mobile subscriber bases during 2012.

Coming into 2013, internet user penetration remained relatively low and internet subscription rates were even lower.Although broadband internet remains almost non-existent in Bangladesh, following the granting of a number of WiMAX licences, there were early signs that the market was about to change as the new WiMAX services were rolled out and started to attract customers.

At the same time, mobile internet was playing a major role in providing online access to the nation, as mobile operators offered 2.5G-based services for connecting to the internet.

The fixed-line market experienced a major setback in the first half of 2010 when the regulator shut down five operators; the action had been taken as part of a major move against illegal VoIP services. The market had effectively recovered from the setback by 2012 and a number of cancelled fixed-line licences had been revalidated'.

The first 3G licence in the country was awarded to the state-owned operator, Teletalk, which duly launched its 3G offering in September 2012.The 3G licensing for private operators was expected to see an auction take place in early 2013.
