BMI View: Pakistan's telecommunications market is one of the most underdeveloped in Asia Pacific. At the end of 2011, Pakistan had the region's second lowest mobile penetration rate, a situation that is also similar in the fixed-line and broadband sectors. Additionally, the regulator has yet to auction 3G licences, leaving mobile operators dependent on basic 2G voice and SMS as well as organic subscriber growth for revenue generation. This leaves Pakistan with significant room for growth, although the potential could materialise only in the medium-to-long term.

Key Data:
  • Pakistan's mobile sector continued to fluctuate due to events such as restrictions on SIM sales through retail channels. The market recorded net additions of 1.8mn subscribers in H212 followed by net losses of 984,000 in the two months ended February 2013.
  • Mobile broadband solutions, particularly EV-DO, continued to outperform and should overtake DSL in the next few years. EV-DO accounted for 35.2% of the broadband market in January 2013, behind DSL's 38.6% market share.
  • Operators' ARPUs are expected to continue trending downwards due to the reliance on 2G services and rural expansions as well as government-enforced network outages in light of security concerns.
