Morocco - Mobile Market - Insights and Statistics

Morocco's mobile market approaches 130% penetration, among the highest rates in the region. All three mobile network operators also provide fixed-line or fixed-wireless services, and the boundaries between fixed and mobile are disappearing as technologies and services converge. The mobile operators have become the main providers of internet services through their 3G networks.

By the end of 2014 or early 2015 commercial LTE services are expected to be launched following the anticipated auction of suitable spectrum. The main operator Maroc Telecom may also undergo a strategic review during 2014 following the sale of Vivendi's controlling interest to Etisalat in late 2013.
