Africa Internet, Mobile, Broadband and Data Report
Growth in Africa’s Internet and Broadband sector has accelerated in recent
years due to improvements in infrastructure, the arrival of wireless access
technologies and lower tariffs. Broadband is rapidly replacing dial-up as
the preferred access method. This process is already virtually completed
in Africa’s more developed markets.


Africa Fixed Line Telecommunications and Fibre Telecoms Markets
While being the world’s most rapidly growing market for mobile telephony, Africa
is also home to some of the fastest growing fixed-line markets in the world. Africa
still has some of the world’s lowest penetration rates in both market sectors. The
difficulties of rolling out fixed-line networks across its vast land mass have meant that
in mid-2010 mobile users constituted around 90% of all African telephone subscribers.
However, as lower income groups are being targeted, a price-sensitive market for
lower-cost fixed or limited-mobility services is emerging. Read more.
