Jordan's telecoms market is set to receive a boost in Q414 as Zain plans to launch the country's first 4G network before the end of the year, after acquiring a licence and spectrum in April . Although Zain's decision poses an upside risk to BMI 's 3G/4G growth forecast for Jordan , this may be mitigated by a lack of competition, as Orange and Umniah have not yet indicated any plans to also acquire 4G licences and spectrum. Both operators have felt the impa ct of strong competition, as the mobile market approaches saturation , and increased telecoms taxes on their revenues, and therefore have limited capacity and willingness to make heavy investments in network upgrades. The financial pressures on operators do not look set to ease up over the coming quarters , and we see this as a considerable risk to investors and growth in Jordan's telecoms market . Key Data

* The pace of decline in the fixed-line sector slowed down Q114, with period-o-q contraction of 0.2%.
* The internet sector also contracted by 2.6% in Q114, owing to a decline in dedicated data subscriptions.
