BMI View: Pakistan's telecommunications market is one of the most underdeveloped in the Asia Pacific region. The regulator has successfully auctioned its 3G licences, paving the way for higher value-added services (VAS) to be introduced to the market. This leaves Pakistan with significant room for growth, although the potential might only materialise in the medium- to long-term.

Key Data

- Pakistan's mobile sector continues to fluctuate due to events such as restrictions on SIM sales through retail channels. There were 139.2mn mobile subscribers in the country at the end of May 2014, up from 131.5mn in December 2013 and 121.9mn in December 2012. Mobile broadband solutions, particularly EV-DO, continued to outperform and have overtaken DSL.
- ARPUs are expected to continue trending downwards due to the reliance on 2G services and rural expansion, as well as government-enforced network outages in light of security concerns.
