ISP Netpage launches commercial LTE services

This report provides a comprehensive overview of trends and developments in Gambia's telecommunications market. Subjects covered include:

One of the most penetrated mobile markets in the region;

The impact of the global economic crisis;

Key statistics;

Market and industry overviews;

Government policies affecting the telecoms industry;

Market liberalisation and regulatory issues;

Telecoms operators privatisation, acquisitions, new licences;

Major players (fixed, mobile and broadband);

Infrastructure development;

Mobile voice and data markets, including 3G;

Internet and broadband development and growth;

Convergence (voice/data, fixed/wireless/mobile).

Broadband and mobile data services and pricing trends.

 

Gambia's telecoms sector has four mobile networks with a fifth one (Globacom) preparing to launch. Mobile market penetration is well above the African average. The national telco, Gamtel competes in the mobile sector through its subsidiary Gamcel against Africell and Comium, both with Lebanese backing, and QCell which is affiliated with one of the country's leading ISPs.

Gamtel is the sole fixed-line provider. Although the incumbent has a relatively well-developed national fibre backbone network, fixed-line penetration has remained low, which has also hindered internet usage.

The launch of a second 3G mobile broadband service in early 2012 has brought more competition to the internet sector where ADSL, WiMAX and EV-DO wireless broadband offerings are also available. The landing of the first international submarine fibre-optic cable in the country in 2011, to be followed by a second one in the near future, will dramatically lower the cost of international bandwidth.

Gambia's largely tourism-based economy went into recession in 2012, but GDP growth is expected to grow by almost 10% in 2014.

Estimated market penetration rates in Gambia's telecoms sector end-2014

Market | Penetration rate

Mobile | 111%

Fixed | 3.5%

Internet | 19%

(Source: BuddeComm based on various sources)

Key developments:

Netpage launches' Gambia's first commercial LTE-based broadband service;

I-Link prepares for LTE launch in the capital later in 2015;

International Network Management Center (IINMC) opens, facilitating traffic on ACE cable;

Gambian internet pricing gains from direct access to international fibre bandwidth;

3G mobile broadband significantly cheaper than other broadband services;

Mobile penetration broaches 100%;

Fifth mobile network preparing to launch;

Gamtel contracts Huawei for fibre backbone project.
