International connectivity key to African telecoms finds Capacity study

09 September 2015 |


International connectivity is key to managing demand for telecoms services in Africa, according to a new study by Capacity.

A survey among leading operators in the region found that 71% believed international connectivity to be the defining factor in managing demand. 

A number of major subsea cable systems have been deployed in recent years, providing much needed capacity for operators in the near and long term. 

The study went on to show that the huge influx of international connectivity that has been made available in the region, has clearly laid the ground for optimism among operators. 

Investment and infrastructure build-out were also identified as important factors for managing demand in the region, each selected by 58% of respondents.
