Equatorial Guinean Telecom Market Analysed in Topical Pyramid Research Study Now Available at MarketPublishers.com16 Jul 2015 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – Equatorial Guinea’s telecoms market structure is characterised by considerable government participation and reduced competitive pressures. Growth is expected to be supported by the government’s efforts to modernise telecommunications networks and thus unleash the adoption of services previously unappealing, or unavailable, owing to low network speed. The country’s total telecom service revenue reached an estimated USD 85 million in 2014, a 12% hike YoY. Mobile voice remains the dominant revenue segment, capturing 59.3% of overall revenue as of 2014. Mobile data revenue is projected to increase at a 27% CAGR to reach USD 23 million by end-2019.
Competition in the country’s telecommunications market has been relatively limited over the last 10 years, with the state being a leading partner in all operators. The incumbent operator, Getesa-Orange, has been the largest telecom service provider in Equatorial Guinea since 2006. Understanding the prospective contribution of a dynamic telecommunications sector to the local economy, the government awarded licenses to 2 alternative operators in 2008 and 2012. Internet service providers (ISPs) such as IPX EG and Guineanet have thrived by targeting the lucrative enterprise and government sectors. However, until more efficient competition is introduced, the Equatorial Guinean market is not likely to reach its true revenue potential.
