Niger - Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband - Statistics and Analyses

Sydney, June 13, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Just released, this edition of BuddeComm report outlines the latest developments and key trends in the telecoms markets. -

Aside from these difficulties, the sale to Zamani Com was also motivated by the poor market environment. However, shortly after the sale, Zamani Com began investing XOF31 billion to upgrade network infrastructure. This has enabled it to fast-track LTE deployment in many areas of the country.

With Niger having very poor fixed-line infrastructure, the mobile market accounts for most voice and data connections. Mobile broadband has been slow to develp thus far, withnetworkshaving been based on GSM and 3G. Thus so the impetus to develop LTE will go far to improving access speeds for consumers.

In addition, the new fibre networks connecting the country to Burkina Faso and Chad will help reduce wholesale prices, and so also the retail price paid by end-users.

  • 15-year LTE licence awarded to Zamani Com,
