Tunisia: LLU and Updated National ICT Plan to Support Development of Telecom Sector Toward 2020


‘Tunisia: LLU and Updated National ICT Plan to Support Development of Telecom Sector Toward 2020,’ a new Country Intelligence Report by Pyramid Research, offers a precise, incisive profile of Tunisia’s mobile and fixed telecommunications based on comprehensive proprietary data and insights from our research in the Tunisian market. Published annually, this presentation-quality, executive-level report provides detailed analysis of the near-term opportunities, competitive dynamics and evolution of demand by service type and technology/platform across the fixed telephony, broadband and mobile sectors, as well as a review of key regulatory trends.

Key Findings

  • The Tunisian telecommunications market will generate total service revenue of $1.5bn in 2015, a 4.1% increase in local currency terms from the previous year.
  • The country is expected to make notable progress toward achieving its digital transformation, empowered by high-speed broadband, mobile data and IT services.
  • Notable market developments include the easing of entry for MVNOs, opening up extra capacity rental, taking steps toward LLU and establishing a five-year national digital plan called the Tunisie Numerique 2018.
  • Mobile data will be an important growth driver, generating $379m in 2015, driven by social networks, OTT communications and video. Over the next five years, mobile data growth will be underpinned by continued smartphones uptake and the commoditization of data plans.
  • The government’s national ICT plan goals will play a major role in providing a support ecosystem for ISPs to deploy FTTH/B and xDSL. Fixed broadband powered by ADSL and FTTH will seize the largest share of fixed access lines at 70.3% by 2020, up from an estimated 39.2% in 2015.
  • The top two mobile operators, Ooredoo Tunisia and the incumbent Tunisie Telecom, will account for around 70% of overall mobile revenue in 2015. The fixed space remains under the monopoly of the incumbent through its subsidiary Topnet; however, competition is intensifying as Ooredoo and Orange focus more attention toward targeting SMEs.
  • Over the next five years, opportunities are visible in mobile and fixed broadband service provision, enterprise IT services and value-added services such as OTT bundling, MFS and M2M. Vendors should position themselves for FTTH and LTE rollouts.
  • Investors can find opportunities developing in e-government, e-business and e-commerce as a result of the country’s digitization progress.
