Mobile subscriber growth in recent years has been stagnant. Mobile penetration at about 108% by the end of 2016 remains relatively low for the region. There is intensifying price competition between the three MNOs Algerie Telecom's Mobilis, Orascom's Djezzy, and Wataniya's Ooredoo and as a result their focus has shifted to developing ARPU by promoting contract plans and developing interest in mobile data services. These have thus far been supported by HSPA and 3G technologies. The regulator delayed issuing operators with 3G licenses until late 2013, while LTE licenses were not issued until May 2016. By the following September all three MNOs were marketing LTE-based services. Supported by stringent coverage requirements, this will considerably boost the availability and capabilities of mobile broadband in coming years.

The market has begun to recover from the social and political unrest which erupted in 2011. Investor confidence has been revived by recent moves from the government to sell a stake in the country's leading mobile operator, Mobilis.

This report reviews Algeria's mobile market, providing analyses on operator strategies, recent spectrum licensing. It also profiles of the major players, assesses their operating and financial performance, and provides scenario forecasts to 2021.



Key Developments:

Regulator awards licences for LTE services to Mobilis, Djezzy and Ooredoo: all three MNO begin to market LTE services; Mobilis and Djezzy apply for GSM licence renewal; Djezzy extends 3G services to 41 provinces; Mobilis extends use of network for remote electricity meter reading, contracts Huawei as partner for its network migration to 5G; Mobilis sources domestically-built base stations; regulator responds to customer complaints of poor service from MNOs; VimpelCom sells its 51% stake in Djezzy to a government investment fund for $2.64 billion; regulator's market data for 2015; telcos' operating and financial data to Q2 2016; recent market developments.
