BMI View: We remain sceptical about the ability of new mobile service providers to change the current

structure of Norway's telecommunications market. Telenor, the incumbent has been investigated for its

dominant position in the market and is likely to be fined, but this is unlikely to change the market structure. is targeting the no-frills segment and Get is offering convergence as a MVNO, but the market

remains effectively a duopoly between Telenor and Telia-Sonera-backed Netcom. Telenor only has strong

competition in broadband sector, where its main competition comes from a range of smaller providers,

driven by municipalities. Fragmentation in the broadband sector means it lacks an additional strong

national service provider, the presence of which would offer greater competition and more choice for


Latest Updates & Industry Developments

? There were 5.777mn mobile subscribers in Norway in Q216 as the market continues to oscillate between

5.8mn and 5.9mn subscribers, a trend that has continued since 2013.

? The overall broadband market was in decline between 2014 and 2015 (latest available data at the time of

writing) according to regulator data, reaching 2.514mn. The fixed market continues to grow, with over

2mn customers and fibre gains offsetting DSL losses, but the declining dedicated mobile broadband

segment had a greater impact.

? The fixed voice market continues to decline, falling under 1mn for the first time end-2015 as new players

focus on broadband and pay-TV services and as market leader Telenor cannot bundle services to snot

bstem its losses.

    Published: 19-Oct-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 71
    BMI View: Cameroon and Gabon's improving economies, dynamic mobile markets and progressive regulatory regimes mark them out as investment destinations with only moderate levels of risk. However, Gabon's mobile market is saturated and consolidation is underway; price competition may also now intensify and operators therefore need to focus on services - rather than infrastructure - as a way of differentiating their offering customers. In Cameroon, regulator ART is actively ......
  • Chile Telecommunications Report Q4 2016
    Published: 19-Oct-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 65
    BMI View: We have made some forecast revisions to our Chile mobile outlook for the Q416 report update. The market posted a strong rebound in terms of subscriber growth in H116, bolstered by WOM's low cost services. Increased access to 3G/4G services, as operators launch LTE in acquired 700MHz spectrum later in the year, will spur growth in the market - trickling down growth into the mobile broadband segment, particularly within rural areas. We also anticipate that moderat......
  • Colombia Telecommunications Report Q4 2016
    Published: 19-Oct-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 64
    BMI View: We have made some minor forecast revisions for the Colombian mobile market in the Q416 quarterly report update. BMI holds the view that the mobile market is beginning to slow, having posted robust growth in the preceding years. The negative impact of inactive SIM discounting became modestly evident in 2015 and into 2016. Looking ahead, we maintain our core view that while market momentum will begin to cool, growth will remain positive. 4G uptake remains at a nas......

  • Italy Telecommunications Report Q4 2016
    Published: 19-Oct-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 71
    BMI View: The Italian mobile market is saturated and the penetration rates of over 142% give testament to the maturity of the market. However, the market also supports a large number of inactive prepaid accounts and the quarterly reduction of such accounts from subscriber data will result in negative market growth over our five year forecast. Price competition is fierce in the market and the recent consolidation efforts will not lower aggressive competition as a new playe......
  • Morocco Telecommunications Report Q4 2016
    Published: 19-Oct-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 48
    BMI View: The Moroccan telecoms market is split between a mobile segment seeking profitability to refinance technological developments and an underdeveloped wireline market with backwards services and high prices. Méditel's decision to offer 4G data for the same price as 3G has forced its competitors to follow suit. We have a positive view of this development over the long term as it will accelerate take-up of 4G services, but it also increases the need for operators to g......
  • Namibia and Botswana Telecommunications Report 2016
    Published: 19-Oct-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 75
    BMI View: We maintain a cautiously optimistic outlook for the Botswana and Namibia mobile markets in our latest annual forecast update. Out to 2020, we are of the opinion that the smaller size of these markets will subdue absolute organic growth prospects in terms of new subscribers. However, growth in the markets will be driven by the uptake of 3G/4G technologies in both the countries. We have a negative outlook regarding the Namibian telecoms market due to the governmen......
  • Nigeria Telecommunications Report Q4 2016
    Published: 19-Oct-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 79
    BMI View: We maintain our positive outlook for the Nigerian telecommunications sector in our Q416 report update, but we have made some minor downwards revisions to account for the slowdown in 2016. The telecoms sector has undergone significant contraction again in Q116 due to the discounting of inactive SIMs. Furthermore, the challenging economic environment in 2016 will lead towards negative GDP growth this year. Looking ahead, subscription growth in the mobile market co......
