Iraq Telecommunications
Market Opportunities, Strategies, and Forecasts, 2007 to 2013

The number of mobile subscribers in Iraq for the three largest companies is at 9 million users at the end of 2006, representing a mobile penetration rate of approximately 33%.

The market added a total of 1.36 million subscribers over the quarter to end-2006, representing the strongest number of user additions since launching service in December 2003.

There are a large number of operators besides the top three, operating outside the registered spectrum. Many of these are using a voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) wireless local loop or WiMAX equipment.

The addition of 9 million subscribers in a little over three years is a significant achievement given the state of security on the ground in the country. Nationwide competition has been a positive development in the Iraqi mobile market with Iraqna having begun 2006 with over 40% market share, and losing share in each quarter of the year, to end the period with a 32.8% share among the top three cellular providers.

Iraq telco services markets at $1.19 billion in 2006areanticipated to reach $1.5 billion for cellular systems and $2.26 billion for wireless local loop systems.
