Zimbabwe - Fixed Broadband Market - Statistics and Analyses

Synopsis

Considerable progress continues to be made in rolling out national fibre backbone networks in Zimbabwe, facilitated by the government’s efforts to encourage network infrastructure sharing. Limitations on international bandwidth are gradually being addressed, with bandwidth available to ISPs increasing sharply. This has greatly reduced the cost of broadband services and encouraged the growth in the number of broadband subscribers. The shift to broadband continues, with the number of dial-up subscribers falling from 8,930 at the end of 2014 to 6,870 by the end of 2015 and only 16 by the end of 2016. The regulator stopped recording the number of subscribers for 2017.

Continuous improvements in national and international fibre infrastructure as well as in 3G and 4G mobile broadband services have raised Zimbabwe’s internet and broadband performance indicators in recent years. Mobile internet connections make up 98% of all internet connections.

  • Econet Wireless launches Wi-Fi in commuter minibuses;
