Telecommunication Reports Q3 2012 for Multiple US Countries on MarketReportsOnline.com
MarketReportsOnline.com adds Q3 2012 reports for Telecommunication industry of multiple US
countries to its store. Following are the report briefs:
Mexico Telecommunications Report Q3 2012
With its relatively low telecoms penetration, Mexico harbours one of the more attractive investment
potential among the countries in Latin America and this is reflected in BMI's Telecoms Risk/Reward
Ratings for the region. While we are cautiously optimistic of Mexico's short-term growth story, the
skewed competitive landscape in favor of incumbents Telcel and Telmex, and the regulator's inability to
improve the situation threaten to prevent the growth prospects from materializing. Our mobile
subscriber forecast for Mexico was downgraded after the sector unexpectedly contracted in Q411.
However, we continue to see strong growth in the prepaid dominant mobile market.
Norway Telecommunications Report Q3 2012
The Q312 update to BMI''s Norway Telecommunications Report contains our latest forecasts for the
mobile subscriber market and monthly blended ARPUs, as well as the fixed-line, broadband, internet
and 3G markets through to 2016. We have adjusted our mobile subscriber forecast for Norway this
quarter following slower growth in Q411 and Q112, as detailed in operator data. However, our other
forecasts remain unchanged this quarter, as operator data have confirmed the continuation of the
underlying trends that were the key assumptions in our previous forecasts.
Colombia Telecommunications Report Q3 2012
The Colombian telecommunications market is growing rapidly, based on strong foundations and
bolstered by good policy, and strong economic growth. We expect Colombia to be an outperformer over
our forecast period, with the government's Plan Vive Digital increasing broadband penetration rapidly.
The Ministry of Communications won the 2012 Digital Leadership Award in February - a strong
endorsement of the country's ICT policy. Colombia was one of the first countries in the region to launch
LTE services, and the first to auction the 2.6GHz spectrum. It was also one of the first countries globally
to auction 700MHz spectrum and is planning to double the amount of assigned spectrum in the next
Peru Telecommunications Report Q3 2012
The Peru Telecommunications Q312 report contains new and updated data, given the release of full-
year 2011 data for the mobile and fixed-line markets. The Peruvian mobile market expanded yet further
in Q411, following on from a strong Q311. It has added over 1mn subscribers in Q311 and Q411, and
BMI believes it will continue to grow strongly through 2012 and beyond. However, our growth outlook
for the market suffered a setback following the announcement that Viettel is to delay its entrance into
the Peruvian mobile market until January 2013. The delay is largely blamed on the Ministry of Transport
and Communication (MTC)'s hold-up in approving the company's technical plan, which will define its
coverage. Viettel is keen to expand its footprint across Latin America and Sub- Saharan Africa and will
see the delay in the launch of commercial operations in Peru as a major setback to its expansion
Ireland Telecommunications Report Q3 2012
While the Irish mobile market expanded this quarter, BMI is still skeptical about the performance of the
market over the longer term. With over 120% penetration, an ailing economy and mounting problems at
incumbent eircom, the Irish telecommunications market does not have a bright outlook in 2012. The
broadband sector grew minimally, and despite our poor expectations in Q212, expanded at a lesser rate
than we originally believed. We have, as a result, made downward revisions to forecasts for the
country's fixed-line and broadband sectors.
Bosnia-Herzegovina Telecommunications Report Q3 2012
BMI's Q312 report on the telecoms market of Bosnia & Herzegovina includes analyses of the country's
mobile, fixed-line and broadband subscriber markets. It also forecasts growth in the number of internet
users and analyses specific internet usage trends. The report contains five-year growth forecasts that
chart how the country's different telecommunications sectors are likely to develop. Our five-year
forecasts are based on the most recent available figures to be published by Bosnia's telecoms regulator,
the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) and by the country's leading network operators. In
addition to our five year growth forecasts for the mobile, fixed-line and internet markets, we have
updated our ARPU forecasts for the mobile market.
