Kuwait Telecommunications Q3 2019

Key View:

The Kuwait mobile market saw net subscriber growth for the first time in three years. However, we caution that withlimited organic growth available, operators will focus on value rather than volume. As such, we do not discard periodic inactiveSIM shedding; growth will continue to be directed to advanced and over-the-top services, which will benefit from operators'continuous investment into new technologies, in particular 5G, and partnerships with established players. In the fixed sector, thepotential liberalisation of the wireline market could further attract higher degrees of investment in the fibre domain, whileVIVA's recent acquisition of ISP Qualitynet confirms our view that operators will focus on convergence to attract and retainsubscribers.
