BMI View: We have revised our forecasts for the Q1 2016 telecoms report update as the Jordanian mobile market performed significantly better in 9M15 than in FY14. In 2014, the market underwent a significant termination of inactive SIM s. A ll three operators have launched 4G services in the country, a positive development which we believe will empower organic growth. Nevertheless, the market remains saturated with a high degree of penetration and a dominance of the prepaid, low-value sector. Growth will come from 4G services, and a possible move towards converged plans that could drive revenue upwards and keep competition strong.

Saturated Market, But Advanced Data Services Crucial For Growth

Latest Updates & Industry Developments

  • The market performed well in 9M15, especially posting strong net additions in Q2 and Q3 of 2015. The mobile market added a strong 645,000 subscribers in the middle quarters of 2015, with the market ending Q3 2015 with a healthily 10.126mn subscribers. 2014 saw significant reductions in the overall number of subscribers as operators continued to shed inactive SIMs.

  • All three operators launched 4G services in 2015 and we welcome this as an opportunity that could drive growth further in a saturated market. 4G services have been rolled out all over the kingdom and we believe that converged services and efforts to migrate users from prepaid low-value services to postpaid value-added services will prove crucial for growth prospects and revenue generation.
