Mobile broadband penetration in Armenia to reach over 50%

The Armenian telecom market continues to attempt to put an effective national telecommunications service in place. With its relatively small population and low GDP per capita, it does not offer a hugely lucrative market opportunity. However, the government and the operators have been systematically building telecom networks and offering services.

The number of fixed lines Armenia levelled off by 2012 and started a slow decline in the period from 2013 to 2017, driven by strong growth in the mobile broadband segment.

The fixed broadband has grown strongly over past decade from a small base but still remains low by international comparisons. There has been a steady increase in penetration has increased from 2008 to 2016. Further strong growth is predicted over the next five years to 2021.

After a run of strong growth in mobile subscribers in particular, the market in Armenia experienced a major slowdown triggered by the Global Financial Crisis (GFC) in 2009. There has been some strong overall recovery since then, although growth has been somewhat erratic. By 2017 there had been considerable improvement in both the economy and the country's telecom market.

Mobile broadband subscribers have grown strongly over the past five years supported by widespread rollouts of 4G infrastructure and the release of a growing range of mobile broadband packages by the major mobile operators.

Growth has been relatively flat in the mobile market over the past five years with penetration actually declining slight over the past two years. Mobile subscriber growth is expected to remain fairly flat over the next five years to 2021. The Orange Group signed an agreement with Ucom to sell 100% of its mobile subsidiary Orange Armenia. The sale to Ucom effectively created a new converged player able to offer a range of fixed and mobile services.
