difference-3
World’s Most-engaged Mobile Population
World’s Most-engaged Mobile Population
Mobility is quickly spreading throughout Southeast Asia, as mobile devices are becoming more affordable, connectivity is improving, and a wave of digital services are entering into the region.
Southeast Asia has one of the youngest populations among major world regions; 10 million Southeast Asians enter the “mobile age” every year. The region has the most engaged mobile population in the world, with users increasingly seeking apps for gaming, streaming music and video, transportation, food delivery, communication, and financial services.
Market Challenges
Despite the explosive economic growth that’s taking place in Southeast Asia, multinational companies often struggle to penetrate the region. Here are a few of the top challenges that companies face when expanding into Southeast Asia.
Last mile issues
Southeast Asia has limited last mile connectivity, making it difficult for companies to move data from backbone networks to end-users in strategic markets. As a result, end-users often have poor digital experiences.
Latency
Businesses typically use central servers located hundreds or thousands of miles away from end-users. This results in long-haul data transfers, which creates network latency and negatively impacts communications.
Managing multiple contracts with ISPs
Expanding into Southeast Asia means having to source and manage multiple ISP contracts, which can be very time consuming.
difference
