Overview

Communications and media business models are undergoing a major  overhaul. Core markets are being saturated, barriers to market entry are lowered, new services and delivery channels emerge addressing consumers and business needs and demands, and service consumption has taken a whole new shape. The Internet has become the means to all ends, and broadband is the main driver of revenue growth for fixed and mobile operators over the coming few years.

As the largest telecom market in the Middle East, Saudi Arabia has endless untapped potential. Rapid growth is expected in both fixed and mobile data. In a matter of few years, we have witnessed monumental change due to deregulation and market growth, in which BTC Carrier division was at the forefront of.

Due to the Saudi regulator’s determination to promote competition and proper development in the telecom sector, a market that was a monopoly in early 2005 has now since dissolved and been replaced by several active key players (currently six licenses/providers) operating in both the fixed and mobile segments.

BTC Carrier division take pride in customer focus and market knowledge, both locally and internationally, and have a proven track record of supplying the right technical expertise, solutions and the latest industry innovations.

The convergence of the mobile and fixed networks, networks migration from the 2G to EDGE, followed with 3G and 3.5G, and the latter being the anticipated route and preparation for 4G, NGN and VNO (as the telecom market matures) which are generating huge opportunities and challenges for services provides.
