New Fixed Networks market report from Business Monitor International: "Hungary Telecommunications Report Q3 2015"
[ClickPress, Tue May 26 2015] Operators focus on 4G developments as overall market growth is minimal. A partnership for 4G network expansion between mobile market leaders T-Mobile and Telenor offers an opportunity to keep costs low and ensure competitive pricing . As taxation on the industry continues, with no confirmed end in sight, operators face uncertainty that will result in lower investment while the government continues to target the industry. Bundled services are offering the greatest growth potential, enabling operators to tie consumers in for longer.
* Mobile market growth is largely over, with just 1.25% growth in 2014. Although the fastest rate of growth since 2008, only incremental growth is expected over 2015-2019. Operators will focus on upgrading existing subscribers to 4G and postpaid platforms.
* Fixed-line growth continues as a result of bundled services and moving consumers to IP-based services. Nevertheless, the market will decline from 2016, ending 2019 with 30.5% penetration.
* Competition in broadband technologies on offer help to boost broadband growth with the segment remaining the most dynamic, growth over 2015-2019 to average 3.9%.

Hungary rose to second place in our ratings this quarter, despite a decrease in the Industry Risks score that resulted from ongoing taxation on the telecoms industry. Its improved position was the result of worsening growth forecasts for Russia. Despite slow growth in the mobile sector, we see improved subscriber mix and spending that will boost operator incomes. The country's regulatory environment acts as a deterrent to investment as uncertainty will hold back operator capex plans. While the market maintains strong potential for improved consumer spending, operators will remain cautious, while the government's plans are unconfirmed. Addressing this, operators will look to partnerships and mergers to keep costs low and shore up subscriber bases.
