BMI View: The Vietnamese mobile market has experienced strong growth in the past and the uptake of 3G

and fibre broadband has been robust in 2015, demonstrating the rising inclination towards both mobile and

fixed data usage. We continue to retain a positive view on the adoption of premium services and advanced

networks, although we believe that the governmental restrictions on 4G rollouts could restrict telecom

operators' abilities to satisfy growing data consumption needs, in the short term, at least. MobiFone is once

again in the spotlights with the government looking to sell 49% of the company. We believe that a good

foreign investor could inject a strong and positive impetus for renewed competition in the marketplace and

drive forward the uptake of 4G services in the coming years.

Latest Updates & Industry Developments

? We are forecasting 134.1mn mobile subscribers by end-2020, for a 136.6% penetration rate. Out of

this number, 55.9mn will be 3G/4G connections. However, we highlight the figure is distorted by

inactive prepaid subscriptions and multiple SIM ownership.

• MobiFone's partial privatisation is once again dominating the Vietnamese telecommunications agenda

with Australia's Telstra and Norway's Telenor both interested in the operator. We hold a favourable

view of the foreign entrants looking to compete in Vietnam as it could provide new competition and drive

forward the uptake of advanced services and new technologies, especially with the country not yet having

officially rolled-out 4G services.

• Viettel has installed approximately 200 LTE-enabled base transmission stations in the residential area of

Vung Tau City, Ba Ria City and Long Dien District after being granted permission by the government to

conduct 4G trials. Rising data consumption could increase subscribers' appetite for faster data

transmission speeds through 4G, and Viettel is keen to be the first operator to move into the area.

    "Growth in fixed broadband prices will mitigate the competition-induced decline in mobile revenue." The fixed broadband market will be the major source of revenue growth in North America, as lack of competition and growing coverage of high-speed (up to gigabit) FTTH and cable networks allows operators to charge more for more-advanced services. However, mobile service revenue will decline due to growing competition in the USA, brought on by the competitive pricing and ......

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.
