Zambia and Zimbabwe Telecommunications Q1 2018

Zambia and Zimbabwe Telecommunications Q1 2018

BMI View: Our core outlook remains unchanged as the Zambian and Zimbabwean telecommunications markets continue to perform in line with our forecasts. In Zimbabwe, we expect mobile subscription growth to remain in positive territory throughout our forecast period, driven by increasing price competition and network expansion to previously underserved areas of the country. In order to retain market share and grow ARPU, operators will have to increase their focus on migrating customers to 3G/4G plans and encourage higher data usage patterns. In Zambia, mobile subscriptions will grow positively out to 2021.

Advanced mobile data services and VAS provide a useful opportunity for the operators to diversify their revenue streams away from traditional voice service. Opportunities for new players will arise in the services sector, where businesses and utilities can be targeted more effectively. With regards to the wireline sector, we believe access to mobile technology will hamper growth of fixed voice subscriptions in both markets.
