BMI View: We continue to hold a positive and favourable outlook for the Kenyan mobile telecommunications market. The Kenya mobile market grew significantly faster in H1 2015 and we have positively revised our forecasts for the mobile market in our Q1 2016 update. The mobile penetration rate remains low and there is significant room for growth. Recent consolidation in the market is driving operators to focus more on high quality networks, product and service innovation. Mobile financial services will be a key driver of subscriptions and revenue growth, with Equitel's entry into the market bringing consumers and businesses a wider range of payments, savings and loans services. In the wireline sector, strong competition from well funded players is also supporting continued investment in next generation networks and the launch of converged services. Meanwhile, Kenya's completion of digital migration will free up new spectrum for mobile data networks, enabling operators to cater to the rapidly growing mobile data market.
