Senegalese government finally gears up for delayed MNP

 

Senegal continues to benefit from solid economic development, with GDP estimated to have grown 4.5% in 2014. This has translated into consistent growth in the telecom market. The dominant player Sonatel, majority-owned by France Telecom and branded as Orange, has effective competition from a small number of operators, particularly in the mobile services sector where Tigo Senegal and Espresso have a 24% and 20% market share, respectively.

Competition in the fixed-line sector was introduced when Sudan's Sudatel launched services as the second national operator (SNO) in 2009. Operating as Expresso, fully owned by Expresso Telecom (in which Sudatel holds a 75% stake), the company launched mobile services in the same year. The new entrant initially chose CDMA2000 technology to serve both market segments but switched to GSM technology in 2010, including 3G/HSPA mobile broadband.

The licensing of new operators has not always been transparent in Senegal, with the licences of both Sentel and Sudatel were awarded under controversial circumstances. Sentel settled a four-year licence dispute with the government in August 2012.

The mobile market has prospered, helped in part by poor fixed-line infrastructure in some rural areas. Mobile penetration reached about 111% by early 2015. A range of value-added services is available to subscribers, including mobile broadband access, which has become by far the dominant internet platform, accounting for about 93% of all internet accesses.

Development of the internet market until 2007 was hampered by Sonatel's monopolistic pricing of bandwidth on the only high-capacity international submarine fibre optic cable serving the country. Despite this, broadband services in Senegal are relatively advanced, and a range of IP-based services including broadband TV (IPTV) and converged triple-play services are offered. Sonatel has progressively reduced its prices following the arrival of several competing international fibre optic submarine cables.
