Algeria - Broadband Market Insights, Statistics and Forecasts
Continued delays with the licensing of 3G spectrum to Algeria's mobile network operators has held back full competition in the country's internet and broadband sector. In late 2013 the regulator initiated the procedure to licence three operators. In the meantime, the fixed-line incumbent Algerie Telecom, itself a mobile operator, has expanded its ADSL and WiMAX networks and upgraded its CDMA WLL system with broadband capabilities. ADSL prices are already among the lowest in Africa. Several of the country's ISPs are rolling out their own WiMAX wireless broadband infrastructure. The full liberalisation of VoIP internet telephony is enabling them to become players in the voice market as well. Converged triple-play voice, data and video services have been introduced, and Algerie Telecom is investing heavily in the expansion of its national fibre infrastructure. On the other hand, almost half of the country's ISPs lost their licences in 2011 due to unpaid licence fees.
