Kuwait is located at the tip of the Persian Gulf and is bordered by Iraq and Saudi Arabia. With a population of 4.2 million, the 1.3 million native Kuwaitis are far outnumbered by the 2.9 million ex-patriates that call Kuwait their home. In 1938, the world’s sixth largest petroleum reserves were discovered in the country and, since that time, Kuwait has developed a high-income, petroleum-based economy with the sector responsible for half of its GDP. However, Kuwait is gradually diversifying its economy to become less reliant on petroleum and this has been reflected in the growth of the financial services sector. There has also been a sharp rise in entrepreneurship and small business start-ups. This increase has meant that demand for Internet services is growing as people look to e-commerce to help their small businesses to grow.
The Kuwaiti telecoms sector is well developed and infrastructure is advanced with high mobile penetration and LTE also available. There are three main mobile operators with licenses in the country and widespread coverage in residential and commercial areas. Around 80% of the population are able to access the Internet, mostly via smartphones. The ICT market is another growing sector in Kuwait, and the digital economy is being pushed by the government, offering access to e-commerce, e-health, e-education and other online services.
Though there is good coverage across Kuwait, there is still a rural population of approximately 65,000 people for whom connectivity is not so easily accessible. It can also be challenging to deliver connectivity to more remote sites where businesses may be located, or petroleum rigs are situated or exploration is occurring. For these more remote regions, the use of satellite-based solutions makes sound financial and business sense. The implementation of fibre, cable or cellular solutions is often simply not an option for these more rural, outlying areas. VSAT solutions, as provided by BusinessCom Networks, can bridge the gap and make connectivity available anywhere in Kuwait, without any need for the installation of infrastructure.
