Abstract:

Our forecast scenario is based on the total number of mobile subscriptions in Hong Kong, taking into account inactive prepaid subscriptions. We have downgraded our mobile outlook, given the high mobile market saturation and decline in total subscriber numbers in ----, although the total number of subscribers will continue to be distorted by inactive prepaid subscriptions. ...We have downgraded our mobile outlook, given the high mobile market saturation and decline in total subscriber numbers in ----, although the total number of subscribers will continue to be distorted by inactive prepaid subscriptions.
