BMI View:
The issue regarding licensing a third mobile operator in Oman has receded. Saturation and MVNO-driven price competition do not make it viable for a start-up to enter this mature market. Ooredoo's nascent alternative wireline business is most at risk from the licensing of Awasr as a Class 1 public telecommunications network operator. The newcomer poses a strong threat, as Oman is one of the few markets where the multinational group has reported positive revenue and profit growth. Omantel launched an IPTV service in January 2016, spearheading its assault on the nascent converged services market, where Ooredoo is at a comparative disadvantage. Latest Updates And Industry Developments

- Mobile subscription growth remains strong, as MVNOs outperformed. We forecast 6.83mn subscriptions by end-2016, rising to 6.98mn in 2020. 3G/4G migration will see subscriptions rise from 3.73mn to 5.07mn over the same period.

- Muted demand for low-capacity wireline broadband will impede broadband market growth, but fibre connections will facilitate uptake of high-value converged services. Subscriptions will rise to 2.90mn in 2020andyield higher ARPU, particularly for Omantel.
