On 20 February 2023, the Authority issued the following regulatory instruments to facilitate effective competition and promotion of efficient, fair and non-discriminatory market conduct, establish conducive regulatory measures and tools to facilitate and promote the growth in the telecom sector and mitigate the risk of abuse of monopoly and/or dominant position.

Telecommunications Code


Competition Law Code


General Duties Code


With effect from the same date, the Authority finds that:

  1. Retail telecommunications market:

    There are no Market Players with Significant Market Power (“SMP”) or designated as having dominance. Barriers to entry are low and minimal ex-ante regulation is needed.

  2. Wholesale telecommunications market:

    Unified National Networks Sdn Bhd (“UNN”) holds Significant Market Power (“SMP”) since they are the sole supplier of wholesale infrastructure and services.

The Authority's analysis of the telecommunications sector can be found in the report below:
