BMI View:

We hold our positive view for the Ugandan mobile market in Q117 quartly report update, based on the faster tha expected growth in the first half of 2016, following losses due to the mandatory SIM registrations in H215. Mobile market growth will be supported by low penetration rates currently around 56. Although, operators continue to make investments in advanced data networks, MFS is likely to remain the primary key VAS in the mobile market as traction in the take-up of advanced mobile data services remains slow.. Should operators pursue this, the mobile market may see positive net subscriber addition. We believe enterprise subscriptions will continue to drive moderate growth in the fixed voice market. Low spending power and limited access to devices will, however, will continue to keep broadband penetration low and the pay TV market will experience growth constraints in 2016 deriving from single digit inflation in the market. Furthermore, we expect consolidation in the market, with Hamilton Telecommunications reportedly considering the acquisition of bankrupt Uganda Telecoms wireline and wireless infrastructure likely to be the catalyst.
