Uganda Telecommunications Report Q2 2016

Uganda Telecommunications Report Q2 2016

BMI View: Low mobile penetration rates and rising subscriber concentration in the urban areas drive our mobile growth forecast. However, intense competition with nine operators active in the market and low incomes ensure that ARPU levels will remain depressed for the foreseeable future. Uganda's plan to implement infrastructure sharing regulations will have a limited impact on the telecoms market, as tower sharing is already common among mobile operators and the country has very limited wireline networks.
