Fast Market Research recommends "Bangladesh Telecommunications Report Q4 2013" from Business Monitor International, now available
Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/08/2013 -- BMI's medium-term outlook for Bangladesh's telecommunication sector remains bright, given growth potential in the nation's underserved mobile market. The latest Q113 result shows evidence of a strong subscriptions rebound after negative growth in Q412 due to government's ban on unregistered prepaid SIMs. However, we remain cautiously optimistic on data growth given repeated 3G auction delays. Internet penetration should increase in the medium term if government stays committed to internet infrastructure investment.
- Mobile subscriptions rise to 112.0mn in Q113 from 107.3mn in Q412 - a 4.3% increase - after strong marketing campaigns by operators Grameenphone and Robi Axiata. Penetration is 72.5% as of Q113.
- Blended ARPU increases for both Grameenphone and Robi Axiata in Q113 due to higher MoU due to roll-out of more affordable mobile schemes. Banglalink experiences decline in both blended ARPU and MoU.
- Based on International Telecommunication Union (ITU) data, number of internet users increase to 9.6mn in 2012 from 7.6mn in 2011. Internet penetration remains at a low 0.34%.
