2014-02-04 12:31:03 - Chad - Telecoms, Mobile and Internet - a new market research report on companiesandmarkets.com
Despite being Africa´s latest exporter of oil, Chad has one of the least developed telecommunications markets in the world. Penetration rates in all market sectors â fixed, mobile and Internet â are well below African averages.
The mobile sector is growing fast under competition between two foreign-owned networks â Bharti Airtel (formerly Zain), and Millicom (Tigo). The national telco and fixed-line operator, Sotel Tchad (ST) operates the country´s third mobile network.
ST has also rolled out a CDMA2000 fixed-wireless system that supports broadband internet access using EV-DO technology. The mobile networks offer basic mobile data services using GPRS and EDGE technology. Third generation (3G) mobile services have not yet been introduced.
Landlocked Chad finally gained access to international fibre bandwidth in 2012, but
it still lacks a national backbone infrastructure to support efficient broadband services. All long-distance connections are currently made via satellite. However, the World Bank-funded Central African Backbone (CAB) project has now laid the foundation for the development of a broadband market.
