Angola Internet and Telecommunications

8th October 2014

Angola is the second largest producer of oil in sub-Saharan Africa, and the recent rise of oil prices has led to continuous GDP growth of around 20% for the past three years. With peace restored in 2002 after decades of civil war, foreign investment has multiplied and the mobile market has soared. Competition was also introduced in the underdeveloped fixed-line market and several 3G wireless technologies and WiMAX networks are being rolled out.

Angola Telecommunications Market Overview and Statistics
Angola is the second-largest producer of oil in sub-Saharan Africa, and the recent rise of oil prices may push GDP growth as high as 35% in 2007. With peace restored in 2002 after decades of civil war, foreign investment has multiplied. However, Angola Telecom’s fixed-line network still serves less than 1% of the population. The licensing of four new fixed-wireless operators in 2002 has introduced competition to this sector, using Third Generation (3G) wireless technologies and WiMAX to provide advanced services. A national fibre optic backbone network is being implemented. Privatisation of Angola Telecom and the licensing of a third mobile operator is expected in the not too distant future. Market forecasts are also included.

Angola Political Background

Having gained their country’s independence from Portugal in 1975, Angola’s guerrilla groups vied for its control. The Communist-backed MPLA won the upper hand and in 1979 José Eduardo dos Santos, its leader, became Angola’s president. This led America and South Africa to back and arm UNITA, a rival guerrilla group led by Jonas Savimbi, in a destructive civil war. The collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 saw the MPLA drop Marxism in favour of social democracy and gain American support. A peace deal with UNITA and free elections followed, but Mr Savimbi rejected the results and resumed his guerrilla war in 1992. In 1996 a power-sharing deal monitored by UN peacekeepers collapsed and full-scale fighting resumed in 1998.

In February 2002 government troops killed Mr Savimbi, precipitating the end to a war which has ruined Angola and starved its people. With UN help, UNITA soldiers are re-integrating into society. Foreign investment is meanwhile aiding reconstruction. Angola’s bountiful oil fields and diamond mines provide powerful motives for interest in this country.
