With the mobile penetration rate now well over 200%, Kuwait's mobile operators are pursuing new avenues to generate revenue growth. All operators have launched LTE services and, with LTE coverage approaching 100%, mobile operators are now focussing their efforts on competing by offering better network connections. Zain and Ooredoo have rolled out LTE-A services to offer faster speeds, while VIVA claims to be the first to offer VoLTE technology. Mobile operators are also leveraging their networks to break into the M2M and wireline markets. Over the coming two years, it sees particularly strong opportunities in the broadband market, where the absence of a strong regional player or any of the existing mobile players means that highly lucrative multi-play services have yet to take hold.

Key Data
- Mobile subscriptions maintained strong growth of 10.3% y-o-y in March 2015 to reach 7.673mn, despite a penetration rate of above 200%.

- Monthly blended average revenue per user (ARPU) continued to decline in the face of intense competition, to KWD6.5 in Q115.
