BMI View: We continue to maintain a positive outlook for the Nepal mobile market in our 2016 annualreport update. The mobile market growth in Nepal was very strong, with the market growing to over 27.8mnconnections by end of 2015, up from 23.19mn a year earlier. Nevertheless, Nepal's difficult terrain andremote geographic position are largely responsible for the low telecommunications uptake in general. Thecountry had achieved a 105.2% penetration at the end of 2015, a rate we expect to grow during our2016-2020 forecast period. New players could lead to faster growth, but we believe there is not reallysufficient demand in more rural areas and, in any case, the likeliest candidates have proved reluctant tomove forward with service launches. Mobile technologies do offer great potential for expanding broadbandto more rural areas of the country and already take up of mobile data is strong, although often using slowertechnologies than 3G.

Key Updates & Industry Developments

- The mobile market added an impressive 4.66mn subscribers in 2015 and had a total of 27.856mn by endof 2015.Mobile growth is expected to be robust throughout our forecast period as we are expecting over34.2mn subscribers by end of 2020.

- Mobile broadband technologies will be responsible for the bulk of Internet sector growth in Nepal asfixed broadband witnesses subdued growth prospects. The recent earth quake may have destroyed asignificant amount of telecommunications infrastructure and we will continue to monitor the audit of thenational regulator.
