Bahrain Telecommunications Q3 2018
This quarter, we have extended our forecasts for the Bahraini telecoms market from five- to 10 years and addedbreakdowns of mobile subscriptions by technology (including separate numbers for 3G and 4G). Regulatory updates regardingbiometric SIM registration and new ownership limits has led to a severe decline of mobile subscribers during 2017, from inactiveprepaid subscriptions. Despite this, the Bahraini mobile market is still highly saturated: we forecast limited growth in mobilesubscriptions to 2027. Growth in the mobile market will come from the uptake of 4G services and investment into newtechnologies, as well as the corporate sector and other VAS. In the wire line sector, regulatory developments for theestablishment of a national broadband network are a positive step in the right direction, although we believe mobile broadband willcontinue to be the main point of access to Internet services.
