The minimum earnings of the terminator in Yemen can be $200 per channel if he has his SIM-cards properly protected against anti-fraud systems and VoIP equipment running for 5 hours a day. To efficiently terminate international traffic, you need to connect a stable Internet. The download speed should be from 42 Kbps per channel. However, is it possible to connect the high-quality Internet in Yemen?
The Internet services sector is not well developed in the country because the civil unrest caused serious damage to the telecommunications infrastructure. The lack of infrastructure hinders the development of the market, as well as the fact that there is no independent regulator in this field in Yemen.
To date, the penetration rate of the Internet in the country is 24.7%, which is more than 6.7 million connections. Home access to the Global Network is expensive, so most local residents use the services of Internet cafes. The same goes for mobile broadband access because most of the population lives below the poverty line and cannot afford to buy smartphones.
Nevertheless, in Yemen, it is possible to connect the Internet using several technologies: VSAT, ADSL, WiMax, and Dial-Up. The average download speed is 968 Kbps as of the first quarter of 2017, but in large cities, the Internet is available at 15-20 Mbps. This is enough for normal operation of a goip voip gateway gsm converter sip with many channels.
In 2017, Cable, a British service, which analyzes broadband access, published data on world Internet speeds. Singapore ranked first, and Yemen was the last (189). The average speed in the country was estimated at 0.34 Mbps. Despite this, in Yemen, it is possible to connect the Internet, which is suitable for efficient termination of traffic.
