Uganda Telecommunications Report Q2 2015

BMI View: Although the Ugandan mobile market is underdeveloped, BMI believes it offers significant growth opportunities. Investment will drive subscriptions growth in the short term through competitive pricing and network expansion to underserved areas. However, rolling out high value services will remain the main objective of the country's major players in the longer term as they aim to create new revenue streams and offset the impact of declining growth from traditional services.

Market ARPU in Uganda has been below USD4 since 2011, dragging on operators' revenue and profit growth and limiting their ability to reinvest in network upgrades and expansion. BMI believes consolidation would help stem further price erosion and enable larger operators to reach greater operational efficiencies and scale in the maintenance and expansion of their networks, but this is unlikely to happen soon as Vodafone recently launched in the market, bringing the total number of operators present to nine (the top three have a combined market share of 95%)
