BMI View: Operators continue to make investments in advanced data networks. However, MFS is likely to remain the primary VAS in the mobile market as traction in the take-up of advanced mobile data services remains slow. Notwithstanding, low mobile penetration, which we forecast at 57% in 2016 and inactive Sims in the market are both indicative of organic subscriber growth opportunities in underserved high Capex/low margin regions. Should operators pursue this, the mobile market may see positive net subscriber addition. We believe enterprise subscriptions will continue to drive moderate growth in the fixed voice market. Low spending power and limited access to devices will, however, continue to keep broadband penetration low and the pay TV market will experience growth constraints in 2016 deriving from single digit inflation in the market.
