Jordan Telecommunications Report Q2 2013 - New Report Available

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Thu May 02 2013

Our outlook for Jordan notes there is limited growth left in mobile subscriptions. Instead, we see operators improving their strategies with regards to mobile content and additional services that will generate stronger ARPUs in the longer run. Mobile broadband in particular looks set to boost the broadband segment, with innovative offerings encouraging more subscribers to try the service.

Key Data

* Broadband estimates for 2012 were upgraded as Q312 data from the regulator showed rapid growth in mobile broadband.
* ADSL connections declined in Q312 as Jordan Telecom reported declines reflecting wider market decreases.
* Business fixed-line subscriptions fell throughout 2012, contributing to faster fixed-line market decline.

Risk/Reward Ratings

Jordan fell to 10th position on BMI's Risk/Reward Ratings table for Middle East And North Africa. Jordan scores below the regional average in the Industry Rewards, Country Rewards and Country Risk categories of our ratings table. However, despite significant government interest and, often times, interference in the telecoms sector in many countries across the region Jordan remains above the regional average in the Industry Risks category.

Key Trends And Developments

Mobile growth has slowed as saturation begins to set in. This leaves operators with little option but to boost revenues by offering new services and products. Growth in mobile broadband offers great potential and operators appear to be having considerable success with over 60% of the broadband market using wireless connections to get online. However, we believe some of this growth has been driven by promotions as Umniah launched its 3G offering in H212. Keeping subscribers using the platform will generate the strong long-term revenues for operators.

New spectrum, announced by the regulator in January 2013, will provide greater opportunities for mobile operators to expand their range of services and ensure they have sufficient capacity to meet the expected high demand for data.
