BMI View: There remains some growth potential Bahrain's mobile market, but the key opportunities in thecountry's telecoms market now lie in the advanced mobile and wireline data market, such as LTE and fibreservices. Operators will need to start focusing on increasing postpaid penetration through the introductionof services which drives usage and bring further revenue.

The outlook, supportedby healthy GDP and private consumption growth forecasts to 2019, is positive for the telecoms market, butwe note that strong competition in the mobile and wireline sectors will continue to weigh on the pace ofrevenue growth as we expect growth to slow down until 2019.
