The three traditional parts of the country are Tripolitania, Fezzan, and Cyrenaica. Libya has a high GDP, due to its large petroleum reserves and low population.

Libya - Telecoms Market Overview, Statistics & Forecasts

Algeria Telecommunications Market Report
Algeria’s mobile market exceeded all expectations when it continued to grow by around 200% for the fourth year in a row and soared past the 45% penetration mark. The country’s fixed-line market lags behind the other relatively affluent North African countries, but accelerated developments in this sector can be expected from 2006 onwards resulting from the upcoming privatisation of the country’s incumbent telco, Algerie Telecom, the recent launch of second fixed-line operator Lacom, a nationwide WiMAX network and several VoIP Internet telephony providers. Improved fixed-line and wireless infrastructure will also stimulate the country’s underdeveloped Internet market, as will the introduction of Third Generation (3G) mobile technology which is currently being trialed.

Libya Country Analysis Brief
Brief economic and energy sector overview of Libya. Following years of civil war and political unrest, Algeria now is experiencing a significant economic upturn, in large part aided by strong oil and natural gas export revenues. Real gross domestic product (GDP) growth is expected to reach 6.4 percent in 2006, following estimated growth of 5.2 percent in 2005. The sharp increase in oil export revenues that Algeria has enjoyed during the past few years has caused the country's foreign reserves to rebound sharply. In late 2005, foreign reserves totaled over $56 billion, compared to $43 billion and $32 billion at the end of 2004 and 2003, respectively. recommended reading.
