BMI View: Both Mauritius and Seychelles are small markets displaying a high degree of saturation.Nevertheless, they have different market characteristics. Mauritius offers greater potential due to thecomparatively larger size and higher degree of affluence and consumer spending powers. Additionally, thecountry is well developed, with higher 3G/4G services and a modest wireline broadband market. TheSeychelles, on the other hand, is a very small market with limited high-value plans in both the wireline andwireless markets. Operators will look to upsell advanced solutions in both markets as they look to sustaintheir revenue streams. Furthermore, return on investments will be derived from service differentiationstrategies and value-added offerings rather than organic growth, which remains highly limited.
