Virus impact over each market - telecom operators, government agencies and regulators' responses - revised forecasts for the next 5 years.
The mobile services market in Algeria showed significant growth in 2018, having been relatively stagnant during the previous two years. Much of this growth was stimulated by the government’s efforts to improve connectivity in rural areas.
Intensifying price competition between the three MNOs – Mobilis, Djezzy and Ooredoo Algeria – together with increases in taxes on voice and data services, have had a negative effect on operator revenue. A new roaming agreement with Tunisia will place further pressure on revenue.
With the market becoming more mature, operators in turn are looking to opportunities in the mobile data and mobile broadband segments to generate revenue. To this end they have invested in upgrades to LTE infrastructure and have reported significant increases in data traffic. Mobilis has trialled 5G and expected to launch commercial services in 2020.
This report reviews Algeria’s mobile market, providing analyses on operator strategies and recent spectrum licensing. It also profiles of the major players, assesses their operating and financial performance, and provides subscriber forecasts.
