BMI View: Zimbabwe's market is due to undergo some significant changes in the near future, with the government acquiring a controlling stake in the underperforming operator Telecel. To the upside, however, there are reports on a fourth operator potentially entering the market, which would add competition. Both Zimbabwean and Zambian mobile markets are set to benefit from tower sharing arrangements, which will enable operators to cut costs and expand to underserved areas, which should consequently boost mobile growth.
