Zambia and Zimbabwe Telecommunications Report Q2 2016

BMI View: Zimbabwe's market is due to undergo some significant changes in the near future, with the government having acquired a controlling stake in the underperforming operator Telecel. To the upside, however, there are reports on a MNVO operator potentially entering the market in March 2016, which would add competition. Both Zimbabwean and Zambian mobile markets are set to benefit from tower sharing arrangements, which will enable operators to cut costs and expand to underserved areas, which should consequently boost mobile growth.
