Asia - Mobile Network Operators and MVNOs
LONDON, Feb. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Asian mobile subscriber growth begins to subside in larger markets
The focus of this report is on the operators within their individual national markets. In addition to these individual operators there are those companies such as SingTel, Vodafone, and Axiata (formerly Telekom Malaysia International) that have built a substantial presence around the Asian region beyond their own domestic market through their shareholdings in operators in multiple other markets. While this aspect of the regional operations is not discussed in any detail, it is mentioned in passing in the relevant country reviews.
However the reality for the success of mobile broadband is that the network will rely more and more on fibre. In the end most mobile stations will have to be connected to a fibre optic network in order to cope with the volume of traffic.
Key highlights of the mobile operator market in Asia in 2016 include:
China leads the market in terms of total number of subscribers, with its mobile market reaching 1.32 billion subscribers by 2016.
India follows not far behind with 1.03 billion subscribers followed a lot further back by Indonesia (338 million), Japan (159 million) and Vietnam (145 million).
China has three of the four top mobile operators in Asia by number of subscribers: China Mobile (850 million), China Unicom (262 million) and China Telecom (215 million).
India is also very active in the market with five of the top ten operators. The top three of which are: Bharti (265 million), Vodafone Essar (198 million) and Idea Cellular (175 million).
Indonesia and Thailand are the only other Asian counties with operators in the top 10 operators with Telkomsel of Indonesia having 154 million subscribers. And AIS of Thailand having 39 million subscribers.
