Eritrea Telecommunications Report 2016

Eritrea Telecommunications Report 2016

BMI View: By preventing international investors from entering the Eritrean telecoms market, there will beno significant boost to growth. Competition has proved vital to driving investment in infrastructure acrossSub-Saharan Africa, with major international players such as France Télécom, Vodafone andBharti Airtel competing with local and regional players such as MTN. BMI continues to believeinternational investment would bring long-term benefits to the market, extending networks to rural areasand lowering prices that would enable more Eritreans to participate in the telecoms market. A range ofadditional services should become available too such as telecare, e-education, m-banking and updates forfarmers, a key industry in the country's economy.
