Improvements in broadband coverage and speed are vital to the future of the telecoms industry in Sri Lanka, and there is pressure on SLT to complete its fibre-optic network on time by end-2016. Consolidation in Sri Lanka's crowded mobile market would benefit consumers and industry players alike as competitive pressures would favour differentiation at the service, rather than the pricing, level. Reportedly, Dialog Axiata will merge with its much smaller rival Airtel Lanka in a deal similar to one being pursued by their affiliates in Bangladesh. The merger of Dialog and Airtel would create a dominant player and remedies such as asset divestment may be demanded by the regulator, benefiting the surviving operators.

Latest Updates & Industry Developments

More than 80% of mobile phone subscriptions remain prepaid, which limits the market for premium services, and average ARPU has not increased although 3G and 4G services have been launched as operators compete aggressively on price.

Consolidation is likely in the mobile market with telecoms tax eroding operator revenues and consequently, Sri Lanka Telecom (SLT) and Dialog Axiata are looking to acquire Hutchinson Lanka and Airtel, respectively.

Dialog Axiata continues to dominate the mobile market with an estimated 44.6% share of subscriptions in Q415. Its merger with Airtel could consolidate its hold on the Sri Lankan mobile market.
