Namibia - Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband

Executive summaryNamibia was one of the last countries in Africa to introduce competition in the mobile communications sector when a second network finally launched in 2007. Despite this, the country has achieved a market penetration rate well above the regional average. However, the average revenue per user has more than halved since then. Both operators - MTC (managed by Portugal Telecom) and Cell One (to be renamed Leo by its new owner, Orascom) - have entered the Internet and broadband market with mobile data services in a bid to create new revenue streams.Fixed-line services are still a monopoly of Telecom Namibia (TN), but as a member of the WTO the government plans to open the telecom sector to full competition. TN has quietly entered the lucrative mobile market as the third player with a CDMA network but was put on hold by the industry regulator until the new ICT Bill, tabled in Parliament in June 2009, brings clarity about fixed-mobile convergence, among other issues.Despite being reasonably competitive with seven ISPs, development of Namibia's Internet and broadband sector has been held back by high prices for international bandwidth, caused by the lack of a direct connection to international submarine fibre optic cables. This will change in 2011 when the first such cable is scheduled to reach the country's shores. In the meantime, Namibia is working to diversify its transit access routes via neighbouring countries, but broadband prices on the retail level have gone up recently rather than down.The country is well prepared for a broadband boom, with national fibre backbone infrastructure being rolled out by at least two companies and the mobile operators upgrading their networks to 3G technology. Several WiMAX and other wireless broadband services offer additional access options to and are standing by to bring additional competition to the voice market as well once Internet telephony (VoIP) is deregulated.Key highlights:Market analysis 2009;Benchmarking with other countries in the region in terms of GDP, mobile, fixed and Internet market penetration;Changes expected from new ICT legislation;Profiles of major players in all market sectors;National fibre rollout;Update on international fibre connections;Pricing comparison of all broadband services (ADSL, WiMAX, WiFi, EV-DO, 3G mobile);Mobile ARPU trend 2004-2009.MWEB WiMAX Business pricing ' November 2009SpeedPrice (NAD/month)256Kb/s999384Kb/s1,399512Kb/s1,5991Mb/s2,999(Source: BuddeComm based on company data)For those needing high level strategic information and objective analysis on the telecommunications sector in Namibia, this report is essential reading and gives further information on:Government policies affecting the telecoms industry;The impact of the global economic crisis;Market liberalisation and regulatory issues;Telecoms operators ' privatisation, IPOs, acquisitions, new licences;Broadband pricing trends, fixed and wireless;Mobile data services and pricing, incl. 3G broadband;Average Revenue per User (ARPU).This annual report provides a comprehensive overview of trends and developments in Namibia's telecommunications market.
