Ghana Telecommunications Report Q4 2017

BMI View:

The mobile market in Ghana rebounded in Q217 for a Q-o-Q growth of 1.7%, performing inline with our forecast. This was despite MTN's substantial net subscriber loss in Q117 because of areclassification of subscribers, which resulted in 3.4mn disconnections. The broadband internet market isunderserved as customers' expectations of speed and reliability are not yet matched with suitable offers theycan afford. Projects such as the Google-backed CSquared open access network and nascent fibre-to-thehomedeployments from MTN and Vodafone should foster the sector. We expect that competition will heatup further in the 3G/4G segment as MTN invests in new 4G and 3G base stations, while Vodafone isbelieved to be close to launching 4G. If the Tigo/Airtel merger goes ahead, the enlarged company will beginto capitalise on its shared resources and technological innovation.
