Iran Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband Market 2019 Size, Growth, Analysis, Drivers and Challenges 2021

“Mobile infrastructure is improving in Iran” “Iran – Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband – Statistics and Analyses” report has been added to its Research Database.

Mobile infrastructure is improving in Iran 

There are two major mobile operators in Iran and mobile penetration is considered to be high with a rate of 119%. Most citizens access 2G and 3G networks and in November 2014, the first 4G LTE network was launched by MTN Irancell. While 4G LTE services are available, primarily in the urban areas – around one third of mobile subscribers don’t own a smart phone. Initial testing of 5G began in Iran in 2017. 

Prior to the US government reimposing economic sanctions again during 2018; the two major operators, MCI and MTN Irancell made great strides in upgrading infrastructure, particularly 3G and 4G networks. Further investment in both mobile and fixed telecoms infrastructure, particularly in the rural areas, is required however in order to speed up progress and lower costs for consumers.
