BMI View: We believe that the Columbian mobilemarket is beginning to slow down after postingrobust growth in preceding years. The negativeimpact of inactive SIMs being discounted wasevident, as the market recorded sharp negativesubscriber losses in Q2 and Q3 of 2015. Lookingahead, BMI holds the view that market momentumwill begin to slow down. 4G uptake is still at anascent stage of development, but we note that theCRC and MinTLC will be crucial in encouragingdata consumption growth. ARPUs will trenddownwards - at least throughout the short term - dueto the low cost strategies employed by MVNOs.

Latest Updates & Industry Developments

- The market contracted in Q2 and Q3 2015 by1.293mn subscribers after having grownsignificantly for around 12 quarters. We believethis may be due to a high number of inactive SIM connections that were discounted. The market ended2015 with total net new subscribers of only 35,000, compared with more than 5.03mn new subscribers in2014.

- Mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) Virgin Mobile Colombia's subscriber base was 2.118mn bythe end of March 2015, compared to 440,667 a year earlier, according to data from Ministry ofInformation Technologies and Communication (MinTIC). Other local MVNOs Uff! Movil,Grupo Exito, Avantel and Empresa de Telecomunicaciones de Bogotá (ETB) registered 1.182mnsubscribers total at the end of 2014.

- The broadband market's growth is supported by ongoing interest in dedicated mobile broadbandconnections, which BMI believes will drive the long term growth potential.

- MinTIC met its goal to quadruple the number of internet connections from around 2.2mn at the end of2010 to 8.8mn by 2014.
