BMI View: Our core outlook remains unchanged in the Q117 report update as we believe the Jordanian mobile market remains saturated, with a high degree of penetration and a strong customer preference for low-value, prepaid services. Over the course of our fo ur year forecast period to 2020, growth will come from the 4G services sector and the adoption of converged plans that will drive revenue upwards while maintaining strong levels of competition. This will benefit the broadband market as customers embrace ubiquitous connectivity and slow the decline of fixed-line connections. There is little scope for new players, however, unless they invest more in services rather than networks.

Saturated Market, But Advanced Data Services Crucial For Growth

Latest Updates & Industry Developments

  • Almost 187,000 mobile subscriptions were lost in H116 as operators removed inactive accounts over security and competition concerns: we forecast 10.4mn by the end of 2016. The focus is on 3G/4G migration and customer numbers will reach 7.468mn in 2016 and 8.963mn by 2020.

  • Although Orange/ Jordan Telecom is pursuing premium converged services as a customer retention strategy, the low availability of last-mile wireline infrastructure will be an impediment to success. There will be 2.381mn dedicated broadband accesses by end-2016, rising to 3.194mn by 2020.
