Benin Telecommunications Report 2015
BMI View: Mobile growth in Benin over the last six years has been very strong, but BMI believes that thiswill decelerate considerably throughout our forecast period. Benin offers scant opportunities for investors,owing to near-saturation of the mobile sector and the challenges involved in rolling out modern wirelineinfrastructure beyond the major population and business centres. There also seems to be little progressmade with the sale of Libercom and BBCom, two of the country's smaller operators. Benin's cabinet hasauthorised state-backed telecoms operator Bénin Télécoms to begin the deployment of 4G LTE wirelesstechnology; this has led BMI to upgrade its 3G/4G forecasts, but we still caution that the uptake would berelatively slow due to the higher cost of data services.
Wireline voice accesses forecast to experience interim growth but decline to 2013 levels of 159,000 by2019, with penetration rates falling to 1.32% by 2019.
