"Operators can take advantage of growing high-speed broadband demand by rolling out NGA broadband infrastructure that justifies a price increase."

Telecoms revenue in Western Europe will continue to decline in 2016–2021, but at a substantially lower rate than in the previous 5 years. Competition from over-the-top (OTT) players will erode voice revenue, but network upgrades and growing take-up of smartphones, 4G and NGA fixed broadband will drive revenue growth in data segments in both fixed and mobile markets.

This report and associated data annex provide:


  • a 5-year forecast of more than 345 mobile and fixed KPIs for Western Europe, as a whole and for 16 key countries

  • an in-depth analysis of the trends, drivers and forecast assumptions for each type of mobile and fixed service, and for key countries

  • an overview of operator strategies and country-specific topics, in order to highlight similarities and differences by means of a cross-country comparison

  • a summary of results, key implications and recommendations for mobile and fixed operators.

28. Key drivers at a glance table: methodology [1]
29. Key drivers at a glance table: methodology [2]
30. Individual country forecasts
31. France: Total service revenue will continue to decline slightly, due to  continuing high revenue losses on voice services
32. France  – mobile: Increasing 4G coverage and high smartphone penetration  will drive mobile handset data ARPU
33. France  – fixed: Operators will focus on growing NGA penetration and bundle  take - up to protect broadband ARPU from decline
34. Germany: A decline in fixed voice will be the main driver behind decreasing  overall service revenue
35. Germany  – mobile: Revenue will return to growth late in the forecast period,  as fixed – mobile convergence discounts dissipate
36.Germany  – fixed: VDSL will be the main driver of growth, due to Telekom’s  vectoring upgrades
37. Italy: Total service revenue will decline to EUR24.7 billion and fixed services  will represent 51% of retail revenue in 2021
38. Italy  – mobile: Handset ARPU decline will slow, driven by value - added  services and increasing data usage
39. Italy  – fixed: The shift from traditional DSL network to NGA will drive  broadband service take - up
40. Spain: Growth in fixed broadband and mobile data revenue will prevent  further significant declines in total service revenue
41. Spain  – mobile: Increasing smartphone take  - up will stabilise handset data  ARPU
42. Spain   –fixed: Fixed fibre roll - out and upselling of converged services will  boost NGA penetration and drive ASPU growth
43. UK: Despite the Brexit vote, the UK market will remain buoyant in many  areas
44. UK  – mobile: Competition remains strong, and we expect convergence to  put further pressure on mobile ARPU
45. UK  – fixed: Broadband take - up is high, so the focus is on increasing access  speed and take - up of value - added services

    BMI View: We have made some modest forecast revisions to account for the latest data from H116 but our crucial outlook remains unchanged. BMI holds the opinion that Rwanda has a competitive mobile telephony market with three network operators MTN, Tigo and Airtel helping to drive subscriber growth. In addition, growing demand for data services and the availability of new low-cost internet-enabled devices should positively impact on 3G and 4G subscriber uptake, as well as ......

    BMI View: We hold our positive view for the Ugandan mobile market in Q117 quartly report update, based on the faster tha expected growth in the first half of 2016, following losses due to the mandatory SIM registrations in H215. Mobile market growth will be supported by low penetration rates currently around 56.

    BMI View: SIM registration implemented at the end of 2015 has severely affected subscriber numbers in the Democratic Republic of the Congo as 9.2mn SIMs were deactivated over the last three quarters. Still, the market is underserved and holds potential for growth. We believe that limited subscriber uptake in rural areas of Congo-Brazzaville means that subscription growth will tick modestly upwards for the duration of our forecast period to 2020.

    BMI View: Despite differences between the more developed Western European markets and the emerging markets of Central and Eastern Europe, the overall strategies of the various operators in the region remain the same, albeit at different stages. As the potential for organic growth is limited, operators aim to migrate customers to more advanced plans and upsell new services as part of a convergent strategy. Competition will focus on services rather than networks, but these ......

Extremely high reserve prices deterred bidders already being undermined by price competition, a situation exacerbated by Reliance Jio's launch of ultra low-cost 4G services. Meanwhile sluggish expansion of wireline broadband is linked to the stalled momentum of state-owned players. The best investment opportunities therefore......
