Latest Updates And Industry Developments
We have revised our mobile subscriber forecasts for both Algeria and Tunisia to reflect the latest operator data for the end of 2016 and the first three months of 2016. We now predict that Algeria will have 45mn mobile customers at the end of 2016 (11.4% penetration) and Tunisia will have almost 15mn subscribers (131.5% penetration).
Currency depreciations had a negative impact for international operators present in Algeria and Tunisia, as USD-denominated ARPU declined.
The wireline broadband market was also impacted by the advance of 3G and 4G services. 4G LTE services were launched in Tunisia in April 2016. Algeria is looking to fast-track the licensing of 4G, although 3G services have only just been introduced.
