Saudi Arabia Telecommunications Report Q2 2019

Saudi Arabia Telecommunications Report Q2 2019

Key View: While the Saudi mobile market is still experiencing some fluctuation due to several regulatory initiatives to limitSIM ownership, biometric requirements and a discounting of inactive SIMs from 2016, growth has resumed in 2018, notably in thepostpaid segment. We believe future growth will come from migration to 4G and above, given the operators’ strong investment intodeveloping their 4.5G and 5G capabilities, VAS and IoT capabilities and services. As operators adapt their strategies to the unifiedlicensing regime and government supports investments into fiber infrastructure, we believe there will be a strong uptake of fiberservices, especially among businesses. Operators' ARPU figures will increase, as operators leave it to MVNOs to cater to low-costprepaid subscribers and are focusing on more lucrative services.
