Hong Kong Telecommunications Report Q2 2014

BMI View: Hong Kong has many positive characteristics including comparatively high purchasing powerand a business-friendly environment, and it was the first to launch a commercial long term evolutionnetwork in Asia. Mobile subscriber numbers have long passed the 200% penetration mark and, despite thelatest data from operators and the regulator showing continued growth, this rate is slowing down,prompting a downgrade in our forecast. 3G and 4G, however, are the key drivers of growth, outperformingour expectations for the year. Fixed lines continue to post declines at a more rapid pace, although IP linesare a bright spot for the industry.

Key Data

Mobile subscriptions continued to grow despite the high penetration rate. We forecast 18.974mn mobilesubscribers by the end of our five-year forecast in 2018, a 254.3% penetration rate

Full-year data from the regulator for broadband subscriber numbers saw further declines that wereunexpected. We believe subscriber numbers will return to growth over the course of our forecast periodto 2.57mn broadband subscribers by 2018.

Risk/Reward Ratings

Hong Kong remains in fourth position in BMI's Asia Pacific Telecoms Risk/Reward Ratings with atelecoms rating score of 65.0, slightly lower than the previous quarter.
