New Market Research Report: Romania Telecommunications Report Q3 2016

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Mon Jul 04 2016

We retain our view in our Q3 16 update that organic s ubscription-led growth is no longer possible in Romania's saturated mobile market . N etwork operators must instead deepen their relationships with existing customers, maximising monetis ation opportunities. A paucity of high-speed wireline broadband network s was a key driver in 3G uptake, but premium service usage is low , souring investor appetites. Demand for converged serv ices is growing, but ANCOM 's refusal to al low third parties to access cable operators' networks will impair further development. Orange Romania's latest foray into converged services is a welcome development and we believe that it could offer the carrier a variety of new revenue streams.

Latest Updates & Industry Developments

Mobile subscriptions increased in 2015, contrary to expectations. We estimate 27.57mn subscriptions at the end of 2015, rising to 28.14mn in 2020; variable annual growth will be attributable to ongoing efforts to eliminate inactive subscriptions.

A lack of broadband infrastructure outside major population centres, plus ANCOM's reluctance to open the cable broadband networks of RCS&RDS and UPC Romania to third parties will weigh on wireline broadband expansion but will drive uptake of basic 3G mobile broadband services. 3G/4G subscriptions will grow from 18.61mn in 2015 to 25.87mn in 2020.
