In Myanmar 5 Facts about the Internet market
The Business Insights team recently finished a survey of the Myanmar Internet access markets and the facts presented in this paper are largely predicated on its results. Until recently, the wireless Internet was still in its early stages. In 2012, wireless coverage was around 7%, with less than 25% of these users being subscribers-only.
After one of the largest telecommunications calls for tender in the year 2013, Norwayâ??s Telenor and Qatarâ??s Ooredoo received licences to run their own telecommunications network in Myanmar. The two companies started their business in September 2014 with $2 SIM and top-up SIMs that enable low-cost voicemail, text messaging and mobile phone and mobile phone communication.
As a result, Internet usage grew at an all-time high. Telenor and Ooredoo merged 15 million users in July 2015, 10 month after their market introduction, of whom around 60% use it. Together with the former monopolist MPT's subscription service, the Internet now accounts for 17 million or 32% of Internet users.
In the last 18 month it has been growing 100% annually. It is an important indication of the interconnectivity of a given state. Gbps is expressed in gigabits per second; it indicates the total amount of information that a given jurisdiction can send or receive in one second, and thus the speed at which Internet users within a given jurisdiction can reach the world.
Myanmar's global range was below 15 Gbps in 2012. Connecting to the subsea pipeline SEA-ME-WE 5 is one of the many current Myanmar project; another 100 Gbps are to be added by December 2016. Telenor and Ooredoo are also carrying out their own cross-border ventures, and many new providers want to launch their own platforms in the global network to increase the overall range of services available.
Telenor and Ooredoo's advent and the new affordable nature of the Internet have drastically reduced the introductory cost for an Internet searcher. Today, 66% of Internet users are spending less than $12 per months on the Internet. It' possible to buy packets, but research shows that even those users who use a great deal of information are hesitant to buy them.
Things have not really improved in recent years: Internet connections to Myanmar have stayed very scarce and few homes can pay for them. There' s less than one wideband line for 1,000 across Myanmar. A number of areas that can only be reached via high-priced Internet satellites have less than 1 for 10,000.
Landlines begin at around $50 per months (for an infinitely low speed) with extra set-up charges and yearly charges, only for those fortunate enough to be in a sheltered area. Today's wages are below $3, so most people are unlikely to have a full bandwidth access in the near-term.
Myanmar currently has 5 ISP' s, some with only a few clients, many with 80% or more of them. Many more ISP' will be launched in the coming month, including those from ASTL, Fiber, WIMAX and Satelliteâ?¦ Many of them say they are not afraid of competing because the markets are still largely underdeveloped.
Surveys show that 96% of Internet users in Myanmar use community based content.
