BMI View: Prepaid subscribers dominate the mobile market and ARPU has been trending lower asoperators engage in price competition to retain their subscriber market share. Although 4G LTE and LTEAdvanced technology is now present in the market, we believes that take-up of data services is still limitedin the medium term due to the price-sensitive nature of the consumer market. As the high telecoms taxcontinues to squeeze operator margins, smaller operators have been expressing interests in divesting theirlocal operations; which could lead to consolidation in the sector. SLT's new fibre-optic network, which isstill being rolled out, will bring fixed broadband to the next stage.

Latest Updates & Industry Developments

? Over 74% of mobile phone subscriptions remain prepaid which limits the market for premiumservices, and average ARPU has declined steadily as operators compete aggressively on price. Furtherconsolidation is likely in the mobile market will with telecoms tax eroding operator revenues. DialogAxiata continues to dominate the mobile market with an estimated 41.8% share of subscriptions inH115.

? Improvements in broadband coverage and speed are vital to the future of the telecoms industry in SriLanka, and there is pressure on SLT to complete its fibre-optic network on time by end 2016.Broadband subscriptions are forecast to reach 3.2m by 2019.
