BMI View: Argentina's strong telecoms growth story continues, keeping the market at the top of

developments in the region. The introduction of MVNOs will make the market even more competitive and

contribute further to growth, although operator ARPUs will likely suffer as a result. The decision for Arsat

to enter as an MVNO and a wholesale provider rather than a major MNO, and offering back spectrum to

incumbents, has allayed some of the concerns from last quarter. But industry risks remain over delays to the

4G auction and in the pay TV sector, the new media law currently being debated in the courts and could

severely restrict the country's largest cable operator. With the highest 3G penetration rate in the region,

and a continuing increase in the number of subscribers signing up to services, there is plenty for Argentina

to lose. Broadband is one of the success stories due to the 'Argentina Conectada' plan, encouraging large

investments and seeing positive rewards. Economic uncertainty and the political outlook are still potential

problems.

Key Data

? Argentina's mobile market is showing no signs of saturation although we believe there to be a number of

inactive subscribers.

? Market average ARPU increased 9% y-o-y in Q412, reaching ARS54 due to the success of mobile

broadband.

? Fixed voice connections continued to fall, decreasing to 9.113mn in Q412. BMI revised forecasts to

show a sharper decline in 2012 and 2013 than before.

? Fixed and mobile broadband connections are on the rise, an estimated 13mn in service at the end of 2012.

    "If operators cannot get the basics of customer service and coverage right, then, regardless of the generosity of their data allowances and the speed of their networks, they will have difficulty holding on to their customers."Consumers in developed markets are going through a transition period, during which their priorities are moving beyond price and their reasons for churn are changing. Operators need to adapt their means of retention when established approaches to service design and ......

  • Cameroon and Gabon Telecommunications Report Q2 2016
    Published: 27-Apr-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 69
    BMI View: Cameroon and Gabon score relatively highly in our Risk/Reward Index for Sub-Saharan Africa. Their improving economies, dynamic mobile markets and progressive regulatory regimes mark them out as modestly risky investment destinations. Gabon is saturated, however, and consolidation is underway; price competition may now intensify, but operators need to focus on services - rather than infrastructure - as a differentiator. In Cameroon, regulator ART is actively enco......
  • Canada Telecommunications Report Q2 2016
    Published: 27-Apr-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 80
    BMI View: We retain our view that organic growth prospects will remain lacklustre in the Canadian mobile telecommunications market. Furthermore, established players will remain focused on selling premium converged services to their customer base. After a series of high-profile spectrum auctions, subsequent spectrum trades and acquisitions, the Canadian market is set to resume its sedate pace of development. At present, WIND Mobile is in a somewhat better position to becom......
  • Caribbean Telecommunications Report Q2 2016
    Published: 27-Apr-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 190
    BMI View: Haiti and Cuba represent the largest organic growth opportunities in the region, as both are significantly underdeveloped compared to their peers. However, the risks associated with business in these two markets mean that a mobile subscription boom is far from likely. Key Data ? Cayman Islands has the highest mobile penetration, at 153.4% in 2015, while Cuba's penetration rate remains below the regional average, at 28.9%. ? The number of mobile lines......
  • Central America Telecommunications Report Q2 2016
    Published: 27-Apr-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 129
    BMI View: Number psortability will encourage increased competition as four out of eight Central American countries have introduced it already. For further competition to be increased, the progress of this depends on national commitments of these countries. In many Central American countries, the exponential mobile growth they have previously seen will start to taper off. However, Nicaragua offers real growth potential, whereas increasing government meddling, as in the cas......
  • Greece Telecommunications Report Q3 2016
    Published: 27-Apr-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 72
    BMI View: We retain our core outlook for the Greek telecommunications market in our Q3 2016 report update. Our outlook is based on the stronger performance of the market in 2015, as the mobile market added over 685,000 new subscribers in 2015, a healthy number when compared to the 2014 losses. Meanwhile, fixed-line connections contracted at a slower rate than we had previously predicted. We remain cautiously optimistic about the Greek market in general. The mobile market ......
  • Netherlands Telecommunications Report Q2 2016
    Published: 27-Apr-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 62
    BMI View: Convergence and bundling will drive down overall subscription numbers in the Netherlands, implying a saturated market lacking investment opportunities and devoid of organic subscriber growth. However, the launch of the first PVNO by CGI and a Dutch utilities company will lead to increased competition in the Netherland's already thriving M2M market. Latest Updates & Industry Developments ? Mobile subscriptions declined in 9M15, in line with expectations. We......
