Despite some restrictions and censorship, Egypt is one of the most developed Internet markets in Africa in terms of users, international bandwidth and services offered. Subscriber growth has slowed since the beginning of the country’s political crisis in 2011, but Egypt was again ranked fourth among African countries in the ‘Networked Readiness Index’ of the Davos World Economic Forum’s 2013 Global Information Technology Report. It is well connected through national and international fibre infrastructure and has some of the lowest prices for DSL services on the continent, the result of a highly competitive sector with more than 150 Internet and data service providers. Egypt’s three mobile network operators have entered the market with third generation (3G) mobile broadband services, and each of them holds a controlling stake in a leading data and Internet service provider.

Key developments:
Political crisis affects the internet sector;
Subdued subscriber growth despite lower entry level prices;
Recovery expected in 2015.
