The widespread application of the Wireless Local Loop (WLL) platform drove initial growth in the fixed-line sector; however by 2015 fixed internet subscribers continue to grow at a very slow rate of under 4% per annum. This trend is expected to continue into 2016 and 2017. In spite of this, fixed broadband internet services are now being supplemented by a rapidly expanding mobile broadband segment.
