Macedonia Telecommunications Report 2015

Macedonia Telecommunications Report 2015

BMI View: Macedonia's small size and saturated nature offer few growth prospects for new entrants andestablished players alike. This view is underscored by an acceleration in the consolidation process in 2014and which will reach new heights in 2015 if the merger of VIP and ONE is permitted. We have dividedopinions on this development: although consumer choice is diminished, it would create a stronger playercapable of challenging the incumbent on pricing and service innovation. The cable TV sector would benefitfrom more consolidation, too. In short, though, the greatest returns on investment will be enjoyed only bylargest and most established players. Newcomers would be advised to look to the services and content fieldsfor investment opportunities.

Key Data

The fixed-line subscriber base contracted by 3.6% y-o-y in 2014, based on the latest data from theregulator. Incumbent Makedonski Telekom (MKT) reported a steeper y-o-y decline in voice accesses in2014, of 5.0%.

Consumers are unwilling to forego fixed broadband services. The regulator reports a 15.4% y-o-yincrease in total broadband connections in 2014, led by stronger uptake rates for cable broadband andfibre to the home (FTTH) even as demand for xDSL wanes.
