Calling Iran from the UK?
Iran’s telecommunications industry is dominated by the TCI (Telecommunication Company of Iran). The industry can therefore be described as almost entirely state-owned. As of 2004, the fixed line penetration was well developed by regional standards, with 22 fixed lines per 100 people, a significantly higher penetration than Saudi Arabia and Egypt at the time. The UAE was the only country in the region which was ahead of Iran in regards to fixed line penetration at the time, narrowly leading with a fixed line penetration rate of 27 lines per 100 people in 2004.
Fast forward 10 years and the fixed line penetration rate is over 40%, though the growth has slowed down in comparison to mobile phone penetration. According to the latest statistics, there is at least one mobile phone line per person countrywide and considering that there are over 70 million people in Iran today, the mobile penetration rate is quite impressive. The high mobile penetration rate can be attributed to Iran’s population demographic i.e. over 60% of Iranians are below the age 25. The Iranian government through TCI has also played a crucial role in ensuring that everyone has access to telecommunication services regardless of their location.
The internet penetration is also impressive with over 60% of Iran’s population is composed of internet users. This makes Iran the top country in the Middle East in regards to internet penetration. Iran’s telecommunication industry is among the largest in the Middle East region, being a $13 billion industry.
