Latvia Telecommunications Report 2014

BMI View: Latvia slipped several places down BMI's Risk/Rewards Ratings table for the Central andEastern European telecommunications sector. There are numerous reasons for this, but the most significantinclude saturation of the mobile market, a non-competitive fixed-line voice and broadband market, lowconsumer spending with regards to services including telecoms and TV and the continued reluctance on thepart of the government to distance itself both from the primary legislator and the leading service provider.

There are opportunities to be exploited, in particular growing interest in multi-play services and the recentmerger of Baltcom and Izzi Group could yet lead to the long-awaited creation of a dynamic rival toincumbent Lattelecom. However, much depends on the willingness of investors to fully commit tooverhauling the resulting entity and on the government to push for reforms that make it easier and morecost-effective for alternative players to access utilities' networks.



There were 2.781mn mobile subscriptions at the end of 2012, a figure BMI forecasts will rise to 2.906mnby the end of 2013. This represents y-o-y growth of 4.5% and a penetration rate of 141.7%.

4G services are being rolled-out, but the relatively high costs are likely to have weighed in rapidadoption, particularly while 3.5G upgrades are still being deployed.
