Iraq Telecommunications Report Q3 2015

BMI View: The resilience of Islamic State (IS) in Iraq continues to pose serious challenges to operators inthe country, resulting in elevated operating costs, large subscriptions losses and falling revenues in the firstquarter of 2015. While BMI expects it will take at least 18 months to overcome the present security risks,Iraq remains a fundamentally attractive market, owing to a large population, a mobile penetration ratebelow 90% as of March 2015, and the recent allocation of 3G licences and launch of mobile data servicesat the beginning of the year. The latter, in particular, will enable operators to expand a rich portfolio ofnon-voice value added services, which have been tried and tested in neighbouring markets, to Iraqiconsumers for the first time.

Key Data

The mobile market contracted by 3.8% and mobile revenues declined in Q115 as the security situationcontinues to take its toll.

ARPUs continued their downward trajectory, reaching a market average of USD8.0 in Q115. Take up of3G services throughout 2015 may help to stabilise ARPUs over the coming quarters.

Iraq's fixed-line and broadband penetration rates remained low at 5.6% and 1.6% respectively at the endof 2014. 3G will drive access to affordable broadband connectivity over the coming years.
