Research and Markets: Africa - Fixed-line, Internet and Broadband Statistics (Tables Only)

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/tbqf6m/africa) has announced the addition of the "Africa - Fixed-line, Internet and Broadband Statistics (tables only)" report to their offering.

This report (10th Edition) provides 280 statistical tables and 27 charts for the fixed-line, Internet and broadband activities for the major 42 African countries.

Fixed-line

While being the world's most rapidly growing market for mobile telephony, Africa is also home to some of the fastest growing fixed-line markets in the world. Roughly half of the continents 54 countries had positive growth in the fixed-line sector in 2011 and at least seven of them saw double digit growth rates, while in some of the other markets fixed lines are rapidly being replaced by mobile phones. However, as lower income groups are being targeted, a price-sensitive market for lower-cost fixed or limited-mobility services has emerged, and a surge in demand for internet access and broadband capabilities is accelerating this fixed-line renaissance.

Problems with vandalism and copper theft have led many telcos to substitute traditional fixed lines with fixed-wireless solutions for both voice and data services. For over 50 operators across Africa, CDMA-2000 has been the technology of choice for this market segment, which supports broadband data rates with an upgrade to EV-DO standard. It also supports full mobility, and converged licensing regimes in a growing number of countries are now allowing these operators to move into the mobile sector as well. Foreign investors are scrambling for positions in this very lucrative market as liberalisation continues, national telcos are being privatised and new operating licenses issued.

Large parts of Africa have gained access to international fibre bandwidth for the first time via submarine cables in recent years. In other parts of the continent, additional fibre systems have brought competition to a previously monopolised market. This has led to massive investments into terrestrial fibre backbone infrastructure to take the new bandwidth to population centres in the interior and across borders into landlocked countries. However, satellite will continue to play a significant role in reaching Africa's extensive rural and remote areas.
