Key Trends & Developments

Cameroon awarded its third mobile network licence to Vietnamese state-owned operator Viettel in December 2012, according to the country's telecommunications minister, Jean Pierre Biyiti bi Essam. The move ends a lengthy but fairly comprehensive licensing process, which breaks the duopoly of incumbent operators MTN Cameroon and Orange Cameroon. While the increase in competition will drive subscriptions growth in the mobile market, BMI argues that the incumbent operators and the new entrant alike will need to innovate and invest in high-value offerings to offset the likely impact of price competition on voice revenues.

A new WiMAX operator launched commercial services in Mali on January 19 2013 under the brand Dogon Telecom. According to local media reports, Dogon Telecom is the initiative of Japan-based Mali national Abdoulaye Guindo. This is a welcome development for Mali's underserved broadband market. However, we note that the opportunities before the operator in the Malian market are almost offset by significant industry-specific and macroeconomic risks. Meanwhile, Alpha Telecom finally secured Mali's third mobile operator licence in January 2013, a year after it proved successful at auction. The company - which is owned by a consortium of African and European investors - has paid the EUR84mn licence fee in full and could begin operating within months. However, the new operator arrives at a difficult time for the country, from both a political and an economic perspective. Consequently, we do not foresee Alpha Telecom making much of an impact in the short-to-medium term.
