Africa Mobile Broadband Market Report

Get all the facts here, in this 176 page report.


Africa Mobile Voice Market and Major Network Operators
As a result of fixed-line limitations, mobile services still represent more than 90% of all telephone lines in service in Africa. The popularity of cheaper prepaid services, which in some markets account for up to 98% of all mobile subscribers, as well as a steady fall in tariffs has meant that an increasing proportion of the population can both access and afford a mobile phone.
