Chad Telecommunications Report 2015

Chad Telecommunications Report 2015

BMI View: Chad is one of Africa's most challenging markets for telecommunications investment anddevelopment. Mobile growth shows signs of deceleration and a challenging political environment willremain a key deterrent for foreign investment for upcoming years. Furthermore, the operators are likely toturn away from expanding into rural areas and rather focus on expanding their networks in cities to offerhigher value data services. Two of the largest operators -Tigo and Airtel have started offering 4G servicesin Chad, but BMI believes that the uptake of data services will be slow. The wireline sector is a monopolyof the state-owned utility and lacks the resources needed to develop advanced services. The broadbandmarket is served by three alternative players, but these are very small and seemingly target a small group oflarge enterprises rather than average consumers.
