Malaysia Telecommunications Report Q2 2015 - New Market Study Published

Although the mobile penetration in Malaysia is high, BMI believes that there is still scope for growth. Strong competition between the operators on the telecommunications sector will erode ARPU, but value-added product offerings, such as data heavy bundles, will add buoyancy. Wireless and wireline non-voice services account for an increasingly large proportion of operators' revenues, and this is encouraging them to reinvest heavily in next-generation infrastructure, including fibre-to-the-home and 4G LTE. However, unlike at other relatively mature market, operators such as Digi , have managed to increase their subscriber base by bundling their data offers in with prepaid SIM-cards.

The latest data obtained from the regulator show there were 3.701mn direct exchange lines in service in Malaysia at the end of September 2014. This is part of a long-term declining trend in the fixed-line sector and there is no let-up in the contraction of the fixed-line telephony business.
