Arab States

The telecommunication sector in the Arab States is dominated by state-owned monopolies in basic networks and services. In most cases, these monopolies are self-regulating and operate under traditional public management systems. Telecommunications is often viewed as an extension of the states’ social service tradition, making reform a highly-charged political issue.
