BMI View: The issue regarding licensing a third mobile operator in Oman has receded, and with goodreason. Saturation and MVNO-driven price competition do not make it viable for a start-up to enter thismature market. Ooredoo's nascent alternative wireline business is most at risk from the licensing of Awasras a Class 1 public telecommunications network operator. New wireline operator Awasr has secured aClass 1 general fixed telephony licence, complementing its concession to provide wireline broadbandinfrastructure and services in Oman. As Oman is one of the few markets where the multinational group hasreported positive revenue and profit growth, the newcomer poses a particularly potent threat. Omantellaunched an IPTV service in January 2016, spearheading its assault on the nascent converged servicesmarket where Ooredoo is at a comparative disadvantage. As a result, BMI upgraded its wireline outlook to2020.

Latest Updates And Industry Developments

- Mobile subscription growth was stronger than expected in 2015 as MVNOs outperformed. We forecast6.83mn subscriptions by end-2016, rising to 6.98mn in 2020. 3G/4G migration will see suchsubscriptions rise from 3.73mn to 5.07mn over the same period.

- Muted demand for low-capacity wireline broadband will impede broadband market growth, but fibreconnections will facilitate uptake of high-value converged services. Subscriptions will fall to 2.90mn in2020, but will yield higher ARPU, particularly for Omantel.
