26 Nov 2014 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON - With the intense competition in the Madagascar’s telecom marketplace, two local players (namely, Airtel Madagascar and Orange Madagascar) have managed to leave their opponents behind given a relatively low level of mobile penetration in the country. Currently, the operators (both focusing mainly on mobile services market) hold the lion’s share (appr. 59 percent or USD 191 million) of the telecom services revenue. 

Though adoption of 3G technologies slightly lower than 13 percent of the mobile subscription base, it is expected to demonstrate remarkable growth in the upcoming years.

Fixed broadband penetration showed slight growth and reached 0.25 percent of the population in 2014. In the meantime, the number of narrowband lines in the country has been falling over the past few years and this is expected to continue in the future.

LTE subscriptions are forecast to amount to 700,000 by 2019 to account for just under 3 percent of total mobile subscriptions in the country. Overall service revenue is likely to grow at a CAGR of almost 7 percent over the period from 2014 through 2019.
