Iran Telecommunications Q1 2020
The Iranian telecoms market continues to show some growth, despite a large number of inactive prepaid-SIMs presentin the market. With a penetration rate just around 100%, however, we believe there are still significant growth opportunities,particularly in the rural areas and in migration and uptake of 4G services, which lag when compared to the region. Investment intofixed broadband is much needed by a tech-savvy and young population, with the government recently signalling its intention toallow for infrastructure sharing. However, Iran's macroeconomic outlook with the impact of international sanctions could affectconsumer spending and operators' investment capacities.

Fixed-line service growth will continue to decline as fixed-to-mobile substitution continues toplay out.
