Report Summary:

Growing uncertainty surrounding the evolution path of the COVID-19 novel coronavirus, on the verge of being classified as a pandemic by the WHO, represents a significant operational challenge for the mobile ecosystem. At this stage, we believe the impact on consumer confidence as well as consumption of mobile services will be modest. Mobile services revenue growth will slow but unless we see a surge in new infections and failure of containment procedures, we expect a slowing of mobile service revenue growth rather than a decline. A return to the (-4%) declines in W. Europe and (-1.7%) globally in revenue in the great recession in 2009 seems unlikely. Nevertheless, vigilance is critical and operators should consider promoting digital engagement around device upgrades and prepare for some reduced roaming revenue.
