Morocco retains one of the most advanced telecommunications markets in Africa. The part-privatised incumbent telco Maroc Telecom remains the dominant player in the fixed-line sector though has effective competition in the mobile sector. A key regional player, Orange Group, entered the market through the acquisition of a major stake in the telco Médi Telecom (Méditel), which has since been rebranded as Orange Morocco.
The country has some of the lowest prices for broadband internet access, despite there being relatively little competition in the fixed-line broadband sector. Competition in the provision of DSL services is slight since despite the launch of services by Inwi and Orange Morocco, and of regulatory efforts to enforce LLU and wholesale pricing, Maroc Telecom has hindered competitive access to its infrastructure and as a result the company controls about 99.9% of the DSL market.
To accommodate the growing voice and internet traffic operators have upgraded their fibre optic national backbone networks and international connectivity. In combination with upgraded fibre backhaul, LTE services launched in mid-2015 have facilitated the take-up of mobile broadband in regional areas, and so contributed to the governments aims as drawn up in its National Broadband Plan to 2022 and supported by the Maroc Digital 2020 strategy.
The mobile market is one of the more mature in the region, with a penetration rate of over 131%. All three mobile network operators offer fixed-line or fixed-wireless services and have developed mobile data services based on the extensive reach of LTE infrastructure. Mobile internet at the beginning of 2018 accounted for about 94% of all internet connections. The dominance of mobile internet access is likely to continue given the improvements in LTE reach and capabilities, and the preference among consumers to adopt mobile solutions for both voice and data.

It also covers the mobile market, with details on licensing regimes and spectrum auctions, as well as profiles of the major players.
