SOUTH AFRICA TELECOMMUNICATIONS MARKET REPORTS


South Africa - Telecoms, Mobile, Broadband and Digital Media - Statistics and Analyses
This 95 page report provides a comprehensive overview of trends and developments in South Africa's telecommunications market. The report analyses the mobile, internet, broadband, digital TV and converging media sectors.


South Africa - Digital Economy and Media Markets - Statistics and Analyses
With its relatively well-developed and diverse infrastructure, South Africa has taken a regional lead role in the convergence of telecommunication and information technologies within the media and entertainment sectors. This promises to generate further reductions in the cost of telecom products, as well as improve the availability of information and services.


South Africa - Fixed Broadband Market - Statistics and Analyses
Wireless broadband services have carved out market share from existing DSL offerings, though the sector is dominated by mobile networks: about 97% of all internet connections are through mobile networks.


South Africa - Telecom Market and Regulatory Overview
South Africa’s telecom sector boasts the continent’s most advanced networks in terms of technology deployed and services provided. Nevertheless, the fixed-line infrastructure for many years suffered from under-investment by the monopoly incumbent Telkom, and the poor level of service encouraged the growth of the mobile sector for the provision of voice and data services.


South Africa - Mobile Market, Overview and Statistics Report
South Africa has a vibrant mobile market that has seen rapid uptake of GSM since competition was introduced to the sector more than 10 years ago. Mobile internet now accounts for more than 97% of all internet connections, and with almost two thirds of the population able to access LTE services this sector will continue to see strong growth into 2017.


See Global Telecoms - Telecommunications Key Market Statistics Report
The global telecoms sector in 2016 will see continued focus on the underlying trends of M2M, Big Data Analytics, Cloud Computing and the over-arching Internet of Things. Telcos generally will focus more heavily on customer retention and churn in the face of dwindling revenues, while also improving mobile and fixed broadband infrastructure for the future.
