African Mobile Broadband Marketplace Reviewed and Forecast in New BuddeComm Report Now Available at MarketPublishers.com16 Dec 2015 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – Growth in mobile broadband use and data traffic remains strong in Africa. Mobile internet traffic in this region is expected to demonstrate a 20-fold increase by 2020, with increased international connectivity being a key factor supporting the growth.
International capacity to the region has grown at a swift pace over the recent years. For instance, it rose by approximately 39.5 percent Y-o-Y by June 2015.
Connectivity in countries located in the north of the region has led the growth, but Sub-Saharan regions have started to seize the share from these countries. Smartphones increasingly gain traction in Africa since network operators currently build out LTE network availability.
Around 50 percent of all smartphones shipped to the region in 2015 were priced at less than USD 100. In the meantime, units produced in Africa are likely to be sold for even less into 2016. 3G and LTE are set to dominate regional mobile connections by 2020, with their combined share being over 70 percent.
In 2014, mobile data revenue amounted to USD 11 billion in the region. The figure is set to grow by two times by 2019.
