Angola Internet and Telecommunications


June 30, 2021


Angola is the second largest producer of oil in sub-Saharan Africa, and the recent rise of oil prices has led to continuous GDP growth of around 20% for the past three years. With peace restored in 2002 after decades of civil war, foreign investment has multiplied and the mobile market has soared. Competition was also introduced in the underdeveloped fixed-line market and several 3G wireless technologies and WiMAX networks are being rolled out.


Angola Telecommunications Market Overview and Statistics
Angola Telecom is going through a restructuring process with the help of international consultants, which is seen as a step towards greater liberalisation of Angola's telecom market, improved efficiency of the national telco and its eventual privatisation.


Angola Political Background

Having gained their country’s independence from Portugal in 1975, Angola’s guerrilla groups vied for its control. The Communist-backed MPLA won the upper hand and in 1979 José Eduardo dos Santos, its leader, became Angola’s president. This led America and South Africa to back and arm UNITA, a rival guerrilla group led by Jonas Savimbi, in a destructive civil war. The collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 saw the MPLA drop Marxism in favour of social democracy and gain American support. A peace deal with UNITA and free elections followed, but Mr Savimbi rejected the results and resumed his guerrilla war in 1992. In 1996 a power-sharing deal monitored by UN peacekeepers collapsed and full-scale fighting resumed in 1998.

In February 2002 government troops killed Mr Savimbi, precipitating the end to a war which has ruined Angola and starved its people. With UN help, UNITA soldiers were re-integrating into society. Foreign investment is meanwhile aiding reconstruction. Angola’s bountiful oil fields and diamond mines provide powerful motives for interest in this country.
