BMI View: The Czech mobile market is highly saturated with a high degree of penetration. We do not estimate the subscriber numbers to increase markedly over the course of our forecast period. Nevertheless, we believe that the high levels of competit i on among the three telecoms companies have provided fresh impetus for organic growth in high data services. The operators have to deepen their customer bases. Data services growth, primarily fuelled by the heavy investment into 3G and now 4G and LTE-Advanced services will be the primary driver of growth during the course of our forecast period from 2016 to 2020. Furthermore, all three operators will continue to invest significantly over the next two years to improve their LTE infrastructure in the country and to prepare for the adoption of 5G technology from 2017/18 onwards. Uptake of new services, such as smartphones, LTE, fibre or convergence, will happen in stages across the country.
