Senegal Telecommunications 2018
The Senegalese telecoms regulator issued three MVNO licences to You Mobile, Sirius Telecoms Afrique and OriginesSA. Consumers will benefit as MVNOs typically address the lowest end of the market, potentially bringing more new consumers intoplay that could be targeted for upgrades in later years. We do not forecast any significant growth in mobile subscribers in the comingyears, which will lead operators to focus on value-added services (VAS) to attract and retain subscribers. Our outlook for take-up of4G services is fairly pessimistic, at least while Sonatel has a monopoly which we expect to weigh on adoption due to hightariffs. Mobile operators are also expanding into MFS in order to retain and attract subscribers, particularly as organic prospects arelimited.With regards to the wireline sector, we believe access to mobile technology will hamper growth of fixed voice subscriptions.
