Latest Updates & Industry Developments
The mobile market recorded 1.2% y-o-y growth to Q315 and reached 10.0mn subscriptions.
Mobile data traffic continues to grow, almost doubling y-o-y from 135 Petabytes (PB) in H114 to 266PB in H115. This has been driven by dedicated mobile broadband services and unlimited data plans.
Fixed voice subscriptions have fallen to 580,000 in H115 from 690,000 a year earlier. However, IPTV subscriptions are slowly but steadily rising and have reached 376,000 at the end of H115 indicating some room for converged services especially as wireline services provide higher ARPU than mobile services.
At the end of H115, there were 1.732mn fixed broadband connections.
