Egypt Telecommunications Q4 2018
While the Egyptian mobile market lost a total of 4.4mn subscribers in Q118, we maintain our overall outlook as volatility,due to the high number of prepaid SIMs, is characteristic of the market. Additionally, we believe there are still significant organicgrowth prospects available in the mobile sector, and the 4G segment, in particular. We expect operators to expand their 4G offeringsand VAS through 2018, but we do not rule out future SIM disconnections. In the wireline and broadband market, recent investmentsfrom incumbent TE and virtual licenses for the three mobile operators bode well for the overall market, although we caution thatfixed/mobile substitution will continue to play out, while low fixed-broadband speeds make 4G data packaged a more attractiveoption.
