Africa Mobile Broadband Market Discussed in Topical BuddeComm Study Published at

01 Aug 2014 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – Africa is witnessing one of the strongest increases in mobile data usage worldwide. Mobile web traffic across the region is forecast to double during 2014-2015, and is projected to witness a 20-fold upsurge by 2020-end. 3G network services will replace older 2G technology and will remain dominant in the next three years. By the end of the decade, around three fourths of all mobile connections will be 3G/4G, and hence the operators will be focusing on taking advantage of released spectrum to expand the reach and capacity of LTE networks out of the bounds of the leading cities.

This growth in traffic is being underpinned by the data-rich applications, maturing social media industry, and mobile video. The African region is also hosting a fresh wave and domestically built inexpensive smartphones, which results in such devices becoming more readily available to a better half of the population. Furthermore, m-banking has stricken roots in a range of national markets, particularly in South Africa, Nigeria, Kenya, Tanzania and Rwanda; this has stimulated the growth of the m-commerce sector – a viable international service within Africa.
