BMI View: We maintain our core forecast for the Bulgarian telecommunications market and have not madesignificant revisions in this quarterly update. We retain our view that there will be very limited organicgrowth in mobile market subscription figures out to 2020. The market will witness growth in terms of 3G/4G uptake as data usage surges in the country and this trend is expected to continue throughout the courseof our forecast period. Mobiltel's recent acquisition of fixed services provider Blizoo will further boost theoperator's competition with fixed services giant Vivacom.

This will benefit consumers, as the introductionof a wider range of products and services over faster networks will be available. Telenor, the third playerin the market, will have to become more dynamic in terms of competition and product offerings. We do notpresently see any real opportunities for the new fourth mobile operator, Max Telecom.Latest Updates & Industry Developments
