Togo Telecommunications Report 2015
BMI View: Comparatively low mobile penetration would suggest a lack of competition in the market needsto be addressed. A tender for a third player has been launched. However, little interest has been expressedin this licence as consumer spending on mobile services is low and Togo Telecom has been able todominate through its ability to offer wireline and mobile. The incumbent dominates the mobile Internetsector, too. This is key to its success as demand for expensive wireline connections keep the fixedbroadband sector in check. Rival Moov has a larger mobile internet user base, but suffers from beingunable to upgrade to 3G. The incumbent plans to move to 4G before end-2015, ensuring its dominance andrendering the third licence even less appealing to would-be investors.
