This book is a valuable resource that provides current information on global telecom's fastest growing region, as well as important background on the context of each country, including a historical overview, and analysis of the policy and regulatory environment, and also strategic investment, pricing, and future prospects. It includes assessments not only of Asia's giant dragon and tiger but also key markets and innovators such as Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea, Singapore and Taiwan; rapidly growing ASEAN countries; and the emerging markets of Southeast Asia.
