The Present Impact of Over-the-Top Services in Sub-Saharan Africa

This IDC Market Perspective looks at the impact of OTT services in Sub-Saharan Africa. It examines the strategies telcos in the region are pursuing to address their shrinking revenues and the burgeoning uptake of OTT services, and it provides recommendations on how telcos can best tackle the threats posed by OTT players."Telcos should proactively develop partnerships with OTT service providers to deliver services. They should also treat such providers as clients. Demand for OTT services will rise in tandem with the demand for data. As such, telcos should prepare for this increase by developing more data-centric plans and improving the data-handling capacities of their core networks." — Senior Research and Consulting Manager Sabelo Dlamini, IDC South Africa
