BMI View: Mobiltel's acquisition of Blizoo further boosts the competition between Mobitel and Vivacom. This will benefit consumers with the introduction of a wider range of services over faster networks. Third player Telenor will have to become more dynamic. We see no real opportunities for the new fourth mobile network operator, Max Telecom.

Latest Updates & Industry Developments
  • Incumbent wireline and mobile operator Vivacom was acquired by local businessman Spas Rusev for EUR330mn in November 2015. Mr Rusev also agreed to pay off EUR400mn of the company's debt. The deal was ratified in early January 2016 and will enable the operator to bundle a larger range of services but this won't be possible until the lawsuit filed by Emprone Ventures is resolved.
  • Mobile subscription growth will steadily slow over the 2016-2020 period as market saturation offers fewer organic customer addition opportunities; rather, there will be a slow improvement in subscriber mix, in favour of postpaid services.
