The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan has made headway in ICT with the liberalization of the telecommunications market and establishment of the independent Telecommunications Regulatory Commission. The current fixed line infrastructure in Jordan is very reliable and alternative infrastructural changes such as the establishment of National Broadband Network has recently gained momentum. The Mobile and ISP markets in Jordan are highly advanced and moving fast towards becoming fully competitive. Even though extensive improvements have been made in Jordan in ICT, empowerment of the regulatory body and affordability bottlenecks that impede higher penetration rates still remain as problematic issues.
