Hong Kong Telecommunications Report Q4 2014 - New Market Research Report

LogoData usage is expected to be one of the key drivers for H ong Kong's telecoms sector over the next few years. The Hong Kong government is actively promoting the territory as a regional hub for data centres, and BMI believes Hong Kong has the right characteristics to attract data centre investments, given its safe business environment, reliable power supply and highly educated workforce. Telecoms operators benefit from the usage of their network infrastructure when demand for data centres increase. For the mobile sector, operators are looking to upgrade users to higher value 3G/4G service plans to offset the loss of voice and SMS revenues to free messaging applications.

Kazakhstan and Central Asia Telecommunications Report Q4 2014 - New Study Released

LogoUzbekistan became the fifth and final Central Asian market to receive 4G LTE this quarter, as Beeline ( VimpelCom ) commercially launched the service in September 2014 . While it represents an important development for the region, we are largely bearish on the technology's short-term future , as the prohibitive cost will keep it out of reach of most subscribers, while 3G remains underdeveloped. Internet costs are some of the highest in the world, due to the landlocked nature of the region and government motivations to censor content. While t here is strong potential in the Central Asia telecoms industry, 4G will not see a significant uptake over our five year forecast period. Instead, we believe Beeline is positioning itself ahead of the return of MTS to the market later in 2014, after the latter had its licence revoked by the government in 2012. Government interference in the sector remains the key risk in the telecoms industry, however, and we tend to believe that this high risk outweighs the potential rewards at the time.

New Report Available: Nigeria Telecommunications Report Q4 2014

LogoAlthough there remains considerable growth potential in Nigeria's telecoms market, with mobile penetration still below 75%, capturing these opportunities will depend on further price competition between operators and potentially expensive network expansion to underserved areas. At the same time, operators must encourage greater use of data services and differentiate themselves by enriching their value added services (VAS) portfolios. As a means of achieving greater operational efficiencies and in order to ensure their ability to continue investing in greater quality and breadth of services, in Q214 mobile operators began offloading their tower assets to independent towers firms. This creates an important competitive advantage for first movers Etisalat and MTN and BMI expects other operators to follow their lead in order to benefit from the same operational savings.

New Report Available: Poland Telecommunications Report Q4 2014

LogoPoland is one of the largest telecoms markets in Central and Eastern Europe, with vibrant competition across all market segments.

In light of this recent experience operators are targeting growth of high value high - speed fixed broadband subscription growth, as well as mobile broadband growth via dedicated subscriptions and smartphones. These opportunities should allow operators to develop data revenues and help offset declines in traditional services revenues such as voice and SMS.

LogoAs mobile market growth slowed in Brunei B-Mobile's future remained the big question This report looks at the telecommunications market in Brunei Darussalam.

The target of 100% digitalisation was achieved back in 1995.

Sweden Telecommunications Report Q4 2014 - New Market Study Published

LogoDespite Sweden being one of the most advanced telecoms markets, BMI believes that the market has passed its saturation point and any subscriber growth will come from cannibalising the shares of existing operators. However, growing data usage could help the operators grow their profit margins despite the relatively stagnant subscriber numbers and lower income from traditional voice and other non-data services. The purchase of Tele2's consumer broadband and VoIP business by Telenor gave that company a welcome boost in scale, but it remains to be seen whether it can fully capitalise on the opportunities presented by converged services. Tele2, on the other hand seems to be focussing more on M2M services.

This was largely due to population growth and the uptake of new technologies, particularly 3G/4G connections and high-speed broadband services.

New Report Available: Singapore Telecommunications Report Q4 2014

LogoSingapore's telecommunications industry remains one of the best performers in Asia, exceeding regional average in areas such as mobile penetration rate and blended average revenue per user (ARPU). However, owing to a largely saturated domestic market, the sector's data ARPU and five-year compounded subscription growth rate have come under pressure.

"Malaysia Telecommunications Report Q4 2014" Is Now Available at Fast Market Research
