Namibia and Botswana Telecommunications 2019
In this 2019 annual update, both Namibia and Botswana's mobile markets continue to perform in line with expectations.Over the next 10 years to 2028, we note that the markets will witness only incremental organic growth as small populations andhigh penetration rates will continue to dampen organic growth in terms of new subscribers. The high number of prepaidsubscriptions also increases the likelihood of periods of regulator mandated SIM discounting. A number of developments, including3G/4G upselling, hold significant potential as carrier's invest heavily to increase access to data services, which will bode well for themarket dynamics. Botswana has better prospects than Namibia as the 3G/4G growth potential in the country remains muchstronger since high competition and the presence of international operators result in higher degrees of innovation andtechnological uptake.
