BMI View: Improvements in broadband coverage and speed are vital to the future of the telecoms industryin Sri Lanka, and there is pressure on SLT to complete its fibre-optic network on time by end-2016.Consolidation in Sri Lanka's crowded mobile market would benefit consumers and industry players alike ascompetitive pressures would favour differentiation at the service, rather than the pricing, level. Reportedly,Dialog Axiata will merge with its much smaller rival Airtel Lanka in a deal similar to one being pursued bytheir affiliates in Bangladesh. The merger of Dialog and Airtel would create a dominant player andremedies such as asset divestment may be demanded by the regulator, benefiting the surviving operators.

Latest Updates & Industry Developments

- More than 80% of mobile phone subscriptions remain prepaid, which limits the market for premiumservices, and average ARPU has not increased although 3G and 4G services have been launched asoperators compete aggressively on price.

- Consolidation is likely in the mobile market with telecoms tax eroding operator revenues andconsequently, Sri Lanka Telecom (SLT) and Dialog Axiata are looking to acquire Hutchinson Lankaand Airtel, respectively.

- Dialog Axiata continues to dominate the mobile market with an estimated 44.6% share of subscriptions inQ415. Its merger with Airtel could consolidate its hold on the Sri Lankan mobile market.
