India Telecommunications Report Q4 2017

BMI View:

The disconnect between the Indian government, regulators and operators is more apparentthan ever following the latest spectrum auction. Extremely high reserve prices deterred bidders alreadybeing undermined by price competition, a situation exacerbated by Reliance Jio's launch of ultra low-cost4G services. Meanwhile, sluggish expansion of wireline broadband is linked to the stalled momentum ofstate-owned players. The best investment opportunities therefore lie in the towers market as operatorsincreasingly turn to specialised providers for support.
