Cambodia and Laos Telecommunications Report Q4 2017

BMI View:

We maintain the forecast for Myanmar this quarter, which we revised upwards after 2016growth outpaced our initial expectations. Growth continues to be strong and competition will intensify asoperators roll out 4G services, expand to rural areas and see the market's fourth and final operator - Mytel- enter. However, the new operator's challenges include the slowing organic mobile subscriber growth,ongoing price competition and corporate governance. Meanwhile, Cambodia's mobile market hasexperienced significant growth in the last few years but the momentum has come at the cost of one of thelowest ARPU levels in the Asia Pacific region. The lack of growth opportunities, coupled with intense pricecompetition and a crowded market, has seen prominent companies exit the market. In Laos, operatorsstruggle to make a significant return on investment in networks in spectrum as low-value prepaid mobileservices predominate and customers have little incentive to upgrade to higher-value products.

Latest Updates & Industry Developments

Myanmar's Ministry of Transport and Communications (MCIT) has drafted a law that calls for thecreation of an independent regulatory agency and scopes out the powers, functions and duties of such anagency. Industry stakeholders and independent experts are requested to submit comments to help thegovernment create the putative Myanmar Communications Regulatory Commission (MCRC), although aspecific timeline for its creation has not been set. We have a positive view of this development, whichwill be reflected in future updates to our Asia Telecoms
