BMI View: Additional competition will help maintain positive subscription growth momentum in Oman's wireline and mobile telecommunications markets through to 2019. Although Oman Broadband Company (OBC) and the yet-to-be-licensed third mobile network operator will provide greater consumer choice and lower prices, their contributions will largely be inorganic; rather, they will mostly cannibalise the existing user bases of their target markets. The broadband market offers the greatest opportunities for growth, owing to a lack of wireline local access infrastructure, but Omantel will be hard to dislodge owing to its entrenched position and ability to leverage its networks in terms of content, services and solutions distribution. The most potent threat to the sector now lies in the services arena, with third party over-thetop (OTT) applications likeliest to disrupt the market.

Key Data
  • MVNO-driven mobile subscription growth exceeded expectations in 2014. There were 6.194mn subscriptions at the end of 2014, a figure that will rise to 6.775mn by 2019.
  • Wireline voice connections also grew strongly in 2014 and our forecasts have been raised in anticipation of there being 407,000 accesses by the end of 2019.
  • Broadband connections will number 2.728mn by the end of 2019, in light of very strong take-up of mobile-based accesses in 2014.
