Bhutan - Telecoms, Mobile, Broadband and Digital Economy - Statistics and Analyses


NEW YORK, Nov. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Bhutan's mobile market continues to expand
The number of fixed telephone lines in Bhutan is gradually declining from a very small base as the mobile segment continues to expand. Bhutan had been isolated from the rest of the world for a long time, both generally, and particularly in terms of its telecommunications. Its mountainous landscape made it especially difficult to build the necessary telecoms infrastructure.

Penetration is predicted to drop further by 2019 as this declining fixed-line trend continues.

Bhutan also came late to the internet. Development continued down a slow path, as the country embraced online activity cautiously. Fixed broadband penetration in Bhutan is increasing moderately from a very relatively small base. The fixed broadband market is predicted to continue to grow moderately over the next five years to 2022. The limited and declining number of fixed lines in Bhutan is restricting more widespread development of fixed broadband.

The mobile market in Bhutan has grown strongly over the past few ears however the growth rate has subsided over the past few years as the mobile market begins to mature. Slower and declining growth is predicted to continue over the next five years to 2022 as the mobile subscriber market further matures.


B-Mobile is the leading mobile operator in Bhutan. TashiCell is its only market competitor, and has been bridging the gap over the past few years.

Mobile broadband has seen strong growth in Bhutan over the past five years and this strong growth is predicted to continue over the next two years to 2019.


The mobile networks have provided a major boost to internet access in the country, largely on the back of EDGE/GPRS, 3G and more recently 4G platforms.
4G LTE networks are now gaining traction in Bhutan with both major mobile operators offering 4G services.

Key developments:

Bhutan's telecom sector has been continuing on a steady development path.
TashiCell has been bridging the gap over the past few years in the mobile market.
The mobile market in Bhutan has grown moderately over the past few years.
Mobile broadband has seen strong growth and this is expected to continue.
