Kuwait Telecoms and IT

As the first GCC nation to break its single-operator monopoly, Kuwait’s telecommunications industry has evolved over the past 15 years into one of the region’s most mature, competitive and technologically advanced. The private sector has invested heavily in the latest mobile technology, including 4G LTE, and LTE-Advanced (LTE-A), with these services moving to replace the state’s dwindling fixed-line market. At the same time, expanding fibre-optic networks are expected to help the sector meet demand for more sophisticated internet services.
