Benin - Telecoms Market Overview, Statistics & Forecasts


Benin Telecommunications Report
Despite having an old style posts and telecommunications entity, OPT, and no independent regulator, Benin has four private mobile networks whose combined connections exceed fixed lines by more than 8:1. While the country’s fixed-line infrastructure is completely digital, it serves only 1% of the population which has hindered adoption of the Internet. Several wireless broadband services have been launched, and OPT has started wholesaling its ADSL service. Further envisaged sector changes include the unbundling of the national operator and privatisation of the resultant telecom entity. This report provides an overview of the telecommunications sector in Benin, various key statistics and market forecasts for the years 2010 and 2015.
