簡介

LTE現在,在非洲、中東各國的其中20個國家開始商業利用。幾乎海灣國家所有通訊業者為獲得契約者而利用LTE,不過非洲各國的情況,幾乎限定為寬頻存取和與WiMAX的一體化。在非洲各國2015年中實施頻寬的新分配,也開放了1GHz以下的頻寬,不過在那之前寬頻LTE專業企業擴大客戶,還有網際網路企業(Microsoft,Google等)以開放TV用閒置頻段為目標活動著。在海灣國家行動電話用戶中也加入LTE的人比率上升到30%,不過因為非洲各國引進落後,還停留著在2∼5%。在非洲各國到近幾年LTE總算開始了,及「行動通訊業者首先應以3G服務預先積累經驗」的各國政府的見解等,為其理由。

本報告提供非洲、中東各國的行動寬頻市場相關分析、目前市場結構、規定和收益模式、新技術(LTE)的引進模式和今後的普及預測等調查、3個觀點(收益推動因素、成本、結構的變化)之市場今後的方向性考察。

'Mobile Broadband in Africa and the Middle East: LTE Profit Drivers and Outlook,' a Telecom Insider Report by Pyramid Research, tackles the question of how LTE is positioned in Africa and the Middle East and what its growth drivers and consequences for mobile broadband are. It reviews the existing LTE deployments and assesses uptake vis-a-vis (and along with) 3G adoption and rollouts. We analyze the current circumstances and expectations for mobile broadband in AME by using three main pillars: revenue drivers (services, devices, pricing models), cost (regulations and deployment models) and structural dynamics (socioeconomic and competitive characteristics).

Key Findings

LTE is commercially present in about 20 countries in Africa and the Middle East. In the wealthy Gulf countries almost all mobile operators use LTE as their new basis of competition for mobile subscriptions, whereas in Africa the use of LTE is mostly limited to fixed-use cases for broadband access, following WiMAX migrations.

Mobile operators in Africa are waiting for the digital dividend, scheduled for mid-2015, and the release of frequencies in the sub-1GHz spectrum before aggressive LTE deployments. Until then, pure broadband LTE companies have a window of opportunity to expand their subscriber bases, while Internet companies, such as Microsoft and Google, will have time to lobby for the utilization of TV white spaces.

In the Gulf markets, pricing of mobile data is often uniform across 3G and LTE networks, while in Africa, the arrival of LTE broadband brought with it a wave of segmentation in the packaging and pricing of mobile data, for instance through data sharing and time-of-day packages.

Although network sharing or wholesale LTE networks are possibilities, unfavorable competitive dynamics in most AME markets hamper the development of such cost-effective deployment models.

In the Gulf markets, LTE will account for 30% of mobile subscriptions by 2018, while the figure will be in the 2-5% range across African markets due to late entries by mobile operators. This is in line with African regulators who raise concerns that the mobile operators should gain more experience with 3G.

Synopsis

This Telecom Insider tackles the question of how LTE is positioned in Africa and the Middle East and what its growth drivers and consequences for mobile broadband are. It reviews the existing LTE deployments and assesses uptake vis-a-vis (and along with) 3G adoption and rollouts. We analyze the current circumstances and expectations for mobile broadband in AME by using three main pillars: revenue drivers, cost constraints and structural dynamics.

Among revenue drivers, we discuss the implications of the emergence of local content that justifies the growing use of high-speed mobile networks, such as OTT video and e-commerce applications. We also highlight the changes in how operators package and price LTE in Africa and the Middle East, as well as the landscape of devices available to mobile broadband. In the cost section, we emphasize the LTE network deployment models in use or planned by the operators, as well as the regulatory constraints and enablers surrounding the future of LTE in AME. In the structural dynamics section, we focus on the effects of socioeconomic market characteristics and how competition incentivizes or postpones LTE deployments in some markets.

Also in this report, you will find a detailed list of existing LTE deployments, projections on mobile broadband uptake over the next five years, as well as concrete conclusions and recommendations regarding the future of LTE and mobile broadband in Africa and the Middle East. The report visits multiple cases of successful and failed deployments, as well as analytical comparisons across markets that can be used for decision-making.
