Morocco - Mobile Market - Overview and Statistics


Attention: There is an updated edition available for this report.

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 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.

This report contains an overview and analysis of Morocco's mobile market, relevant statistics and profiles of the major players.

Key developments:

Commercial LTE services expected in late 2014; majority stake in Maroc Telecom sold to Etisalat; new SIM card registration regulations take effect; report includes the regulator's market data to Q3 2013, market developments to December 2013.
