[ClickPress, Mon Mar 02 2015] Jordan's telecoms operators look set to remain under intense financial pressure over our five-year forecast, as they will be buffeted by macroeconomic and industry-specific challenges. Strong competition has also played a role, with ARPUs falling across the board in the first nine months of 2014. Increased taxes on telecoms revenues have been a major factor in operator revenue declines and t he government is not inclined to reduce taxes or reinstate subsidies given its weak fiscal position. . In this set of circumstances, network operators must find new ways to generate revenue and reduce operating expenses. Zain launched Jordan's first 4G LTE network in February 2015 and Orange is likely to launch its network within 2015. BMI believes that stronger macro outlook and historical 3G user base growth shows that 4G adaption too will be strong.
