BMI View: The Vietnamese mobile market has experienced strong growth in the past and the uptake of 3Gand fibre broadband has been robust in 2015, demonstrating the rising inclination towards both mobile andfixed data usage. We continue to retain a positive view on the adoption of premium services and advancednetworks, although we believe that the governmental restrictions on 4G rollouts could restrict telecomoperators' abilities to satisfy growing data consumption needs, in the short term, at least. MobiFone is onceagain in the spotlights with the government looking to sell 49% of the company. We believe that a goodforeign investor could inject a strong and positive impetus for renewed competition in the marketplace anddrive forward the uptake of 4G services in the coming years.

Latest Updates & Industry Developments

- We are forecasting 134.1mn mobile subscribers by end-2020, for a 136.6% penetration rate. Out ofthis number, 55.9mn will be 3G/4G connections. However, we highlight the figure is distorted byinactive prepaid subscriptions and multiple SIM ownership.

- MobiFone's partial privatisation is once again dominating the Vietnamese telecommunications agendawith Australia's Telstra and Norway's Telenor both interested in the operator. We hold a favourableview of the foreign entrants looking to compete in Vietnam as it could provide new competition and driveforward the uptake of advanced services and new technologies, especially with the country not yet havingofficially rolled-out 4G services.

- Viettel has installed approximately 200 LTE-enabled base transmission stations in the residential area ofVung Tau City, Ba Ria City and Long Dien District after being granted permission by the government toconduct 4G trials. Rising data consumption could increase subscribers' appetite for faster datatransmission speeds through 4G, and Viettel is keen to be the first operator to move into the area.
