Cambodia and Laos Telecommunications Report Q2 2015

Cambodia and Laos Telecommunications Report Q2 2015

BMI View: Interest is growing in the broadband internet sector in Southeast Asia, spearheaded by VietnamPost and Telecommunications Corporation (VNPT), which has opened offices in Laos, Cambodia andMyanmar in the last year. Investors from elsewhere in Asia such as SEATEL and Emaxx are also eyeing upthe three countries and the potential for broadband internet over a longer term horizon. While mobilegrowth is comparatively easier and results in faster results, expanding broadband in Cambodia, Laos andMyanmar will be a more costly exercise over a lengthy timeline. The opportunities are there, with eachmarket reporting less than 5% penetration of fixed broadband, however, they will be held back by lowspending power making it difficult to gain access to more expensive computers, laptops or tablets to accessbroadband services. Using 4G will help with the broadband rollout but mobile will continue to be thedominant force in the region, with customers preferring to access the Internet via handsets. That investorssee potential in the broadband space bodes well over the long-term and stands in stark contrast to that offixed-line telephony, which will remain undeveloped over our forecast period.

Key Data

BMI forecasts growth of 135% in 2014 in Myanmar as a result of the Ooredoo and Telenor launches,with subscribers rising to 14.4mn. By the end of 2019, we see mobile subscriptions reaching 70.78mn.

LTE services have been made available in Laos and Cambodia following Smart's launch in the latter asof January 2014. However, we do not expect this to provide a significant boost to the overall broadbandmarket due to a lack of demand and consumers' low purchasing power.
