Fixed segment revenue increased from US$3,780.2 million in 2012 to US$4,098.0 million in 2016 at 2.0% CAGR during 2012-2016 and is further expected to grow at 2.3% CAGR for 2016-2021 is expected to increase to US$4,582.4 million by 2021. The increase in the fixed line revenue will primarily be because of the increase in the Internet revenue between 2016 and 2021. In terms of ARPS, Fixed voice ARPS is expected to decline from US$66.8 to US$54.3 between 2016 and 2021. Also, the fixed Internet ARPS is expected to decline from US$103.2 to US$99.4 between 2016 and 2021.The decline in the fixed voice ARPS is due to the decrease in the number of subscribers, change in the preference of consumers from voice to data.

Saudi Arabian governement plans to boost broadband connectivity
It was estimated that 69.0% of Saudi Arabia’s population was using the Internet in 2016. This is expected to increase to 77.0% by the end of 2021 as digital literacy levels rise in the kingdom. Additionally, the broadband penetration rate in 2016 in Saudi Arabia stood at 11.0% but is expected to increase to 16.0% by 2021. This is attributed to the initiative of Ministry of Communications and Information Technology to provide broadband connectivity to all the regions of Saudi Arabia under the national transformation plan by stimulating investment for the development of the required infrastructure.

The telecommunication industry to get big cash investments
The National Transformation plan undertaken by the government to create a strong non-oil economy has given a lot of impetus to the sectors such as telecom.
