Africa and Middle East Telecommunications - Boom or Bust
The reality for Africa - a continent of some fifty-plus countries and almost one billion people - is that there is a wide range of very different cases. The countries most affected by the crisis are those with economies that depend heavily on resources exports, like Botswana (diamonds) and Equatorial Guinea (oil) - and other oil exporting countries such as Gabon, Angola, Cameroon, Guinea-Bissau and Nigeria also don’t fare too well. Middle Eastern countries however have not suffered so much but the effects have certainly been felt. The countries that have suffered most are generally those with the most open economies. Countries such as Yemen or Syria have registered very little change, if any. Iraq and Lebanon have continued to grow because they were coming from very low rates due to past political turmoil. Qatar is so immensely wealthy and its rate of growth so high that a considerable drop still left it at over 11%. Read the Executive Summary.

Middle East Internet, Broadband and Digital Media Report
This annual report offers a wealth of information on the Digital Media, Broadband and Internet markets in each of the following countries: Bahrain, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Turkey, UAE and Yemen. See the Executive Summary and Table of Content.

Middle East Telecommunications - Mobile Market, Overview and Forecasts
The very dynamic mobile market of the Middle East has very high penetration rates but continues with surprisingly high growth rates as competition continues to increase. All countries now have at least two licensed operators. In addition MVNOs are appearing. Several very large players have grown both by buying new licences and established operators in the Middle East, Africa and West Asia. The increasing pan-regional competition should be an added factor to greater growth. 3G services are operating in the more developed markets, together with HSPA. This report includes five and ten year forecasts for most markets. See further details in the Executive Summary.
