LONDON – The launch of limited services as well as expected this month launch of full commercial services by Mozambique’s third mobile operator, the rollout of mobile money services by Econet Wireless in Zimbabwe, the completion of the Liquid Telecom-CEC fibre-optic network rollout in Zambia and the expansion of Orange Botswana’s 3G network are among the key recent developments in Southern Africa’s telecoms markets.

In the meantime, the trend towards rural rollout seems to be acquiring vogue in the region with some operators announcing considerable network investment plans during 2012. Though, successful network expansion to underserved areas in tandem with ongoing downward pressure on mobile tariffs and devices poses danger to the subscriber growth forecasts.
