Average Revenue per User (ARPU).Ethiopia is the last country in Africa allowing its national telco, ETC a monopoly on all telecom services including fixed, mobile, Internet and data communications. This monopolistic control has stifled innovation and retarded expansion. The government tries to encourage foreign investment in a broad range of industries by allowing foreigners up to 100% equity ownership. However, there is no official schedule for the privatisation of the national carrier and the introduction of competition, but once this happens, the potential to satisfy unmet demand in all service sectors is huge. A management contract with France Telecom is expected to lead to improved performance by ETC and is seen as a first step towards privatisation.

Market highlights:

Forecasts for mobile and Internet markets to 2013 and 2016;

Detailed profile of the monopoly service provider in all market sectors;

France Telecom to manage ETC until 2013;

Extensive rollouts of national and international fibre infrastructure;

Multi-billion US$ investments planned before 2012.Estimated market penetration rates in Ethiopias telecoms sector - end 2011
