Morocco’s Internet market was dominated by Maroc Telecom’s ADSL broadband service which once held over 90% of the market. Despite this de-facto monopoly situation, the country developed some of the lowest broadband prices and highest penetration rates in Africa and has seen the introduction of innovative new services such as the first commercial IPTV service on the continent.
Five years after their introduction, third-generation (3G) mobile broadband services had taken more than 80% of the broadband market by 2012. This trend is continuing in 2013, since the mobile networks reach a far greater percentage of the population than MT’s copper fixed-line network.
To accommodate the increasing amount of Internet traffic, fibre optic national backbone networks and international connectivity are being expanded. A National Broadband Plan was launched in 2012, aiming to provide fixed or mobile broadband access to the entire population by 2022.
