BMI View: Following years of underperformance due to limited foreign investment and lack of advanced mobile data services, the launch of 3G/4G service by the Iran's two leading mobile operators has offered a major boost to subscriptions and value growth. This positive trajectory will be sustained over the coming years, as the expected lifting of sanctions from 2016 and allocation of new licences attract increased investment to the market. Iran's strict censorship of the Internet and the large number of inactive SIMs on operators' networks pose the main downside risks to our growth outlook.

Latest Updates & Industry Developments
  • Net mobile additions of 9.7mn in 9M15 was driven by newly available 3G/4G services, and prompted an upward revision to our growth forecasts. We now project total mobile subscriptions to reach 129.1mn in 2015, 19% of which will be using 3G/4G services.
  • Growth in the wireline segment will be more subdued, as availability of mobile data services weighs on demand for wireline services. Nevertheless, planned allocation of wholesale wireless broadband licences poses an upside risk to our forecast of 9.9mn subscriptions by 2019.
