Malaysia - Broadband Market and Forecasts
Malaysia continues to heavily promote itself as an Information Technology hub in the Asia region. Whilst there had been a good response at a corporate level, for some time the wider community was not really embracing technology. In relative terms, there had been a surprisingly low interest in broadband internet. The national broadband penetration was around 8% of the population coming into 2011. This was despite the government having launched a National Broadband Plan which had targeted a 15% penetration by 2010. One bright spots has been WiFi, as the service providers start to roll out their ‘hotspot' services. With the government issuing some WiMAX licences, a highly competitive wireless broadband market has been developing as the mobile operators increase the capability of their offerings. Another major push towards wider broadband adoption has been prompted by Telekom Malaysia's roll-out of its fibre-based High-Speed Broadband network. This report looks at the extent to which high-speed Internet access is developing in the country.
On the back of the broadband boom, and especially the high wireless broadband take up, the government was able to report in January 2011 that Malaysia's broadband penetration rate had reached 55.6% surpassing the national target of 50%.

Malaysia - Broadcasting
With its history of tight censorship laws, Malaysia did not open up the television broadcasting market to private operators until 1995. Despite this, the proportion of Malaysian households that have a television set has risen to over 95%. There are six FTA TV channels and more than 100 pay TV channels offering a wide range of local and foreign programs in a broad selection of languages. Of particular note has been the strong growth of satellite TV operator, Astro. This report reviews the development of the television broadcasting sector, as the market sorts itself out, moves towards convergence and starts to address the challenges that new technology is bringing to the sector.

Malaysia - Internet Services
There is an increasing awareness of technology in Malaysia. With the Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC) project and the government's commitment to a technological society, a large number of high tech companies from around the world have set up a presence in Malaysia. But efforts at encouraging the wider community to embrace technology have so far not been totally successful. Dial-up Internet access has grown steadily, but for a long time there was very little interest in broadband Internet. By 2008 and into 2009, however, things were starting to get interesting in the broadband access market. The promulgation of the National Broadband Plan by the government in 2008 signalled a fresh push to expand Internet access throughout the country. This report looks at the take-up of Internet and e-commerce in Malaysia, as well as some of the key service providers.

Malaysia - Key Statistics, Telecoms Market Overview, Infrastructure and Forecasts
There has been strong growth in Malaysia's telecom sector over the last decade, but the growth has not been consistent across the sector. The number of fixed-line services, after growing rapidly, has been relatively static for the last ten years. The mobile market has been more spectacular, racing to almost 35 million by early 2011, up from just 6 million subscribers in 2000. After starting off slowly broadband internet has been expanding strongly and coming into 2011 had passed 50% household penetration. This report looks at the growth in the telecommunications sector and where it has reached. The report also describes how the country has continued to allocate capital to invest in information technology and telecommunications infrastructure despite setbacks caused by periods of difficult regional and global economic conditions. The end result is that projects like the Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC) have continued to flourish.

Malaysia - Mobile Communications - Major Mobile Operators
The changing landscape of the Malaysian mobile market has over time witnessed the restructuring of all the main players. The government has been a strong supporter of the rationalisation of what had been seen as an ‘overcrowded' market at times. A particularly significant merger between Telekom and Celcom took place early on, creating a lot of interest. At the same time, but with less fanfare, Maxis acquired Time dotCom's mobile unit. These changes resulted in the number of operators being effectively reduced from five to three. The allocation of 3G licences has also been controversial with one of the operators initially missing out then picking up one in a surprising fashion. By end-2009 Maxis Communications had a mobile subscriber base of 12.3 million, with Celcom in second place on 9.2 million, while DiGi was number three with 7.7 million subscribers. U Mobile, a new operator with its exclusively 3G offering, was trailing the field with an estimated 1.2 million subscribers at the time. This report looks at the mobile operators in the Malaysian market.
