Regional - Broadband - DSL in Africa, Middle East - 2007

Synopsis

Archived report. This report was archived in 2008 and has not been updated since. This report described the broadband market in Africa and the Middle East, with a focus on DSL. It includes in-depth analyses of the industry, statistical information and a look at the various trends and developments, primarily during the 2005 – 2007 period. While Internet uptake is growing steadily in Africa, market penetration is still very low due to the lack of reliable phone lines. Nevertheless, several African countries have experienced triple-digit growth rates in Internet usage in recent years. In the Middle East, broadband use is increasing rapidly in the wealthier countries of the Arab Middle East with levels approaching those of European countries. Israel is one of the most developed broadband markets in the world. However, wide income disparities across the region are reflected in broadband penetration rates.
