Kenya Telecommunications Report Q4 2017

Kenya Telecommunications Report Q4 2017

BMI View:

We have made no major revisions to the Keyan telecoms market outlook for Q417, and webelieve the Kenyan telecoms market will continue to be a bright spot in the Sub-Saharan African region. Inthe mobile market, we expect increased competition from newly licensed MVNOs to force operators toexpand their networks beyond their core service areas, which will be a positive in terms of increasingmobile penetration. Equally significant, Orange commercialised its LTE services in July 2017, and weexpect the operator to increase competition as well as access the mobile data market. In the wirelinemarket, we are bearish on the growth of fixed voice subscriptions on the back of customers having greateraccess to mobile technology. Although we do not expect Safaricom's 2017 fibre expansion to lead to adramatic shake-up in the broadband market, we expect its fibre investment, as well as the subsequentcommercialisation of broadband offerings, to have a positive effect in the wireline market both in terms ofsubscriptions as well as the development of the market.
