Following the end of a decades-long civil war in 2002, foreign investment in Angola has intensified. This has had a knock-on effect in the telecoms sector, where there has been considerable interest in national infrastructure upgrades, as well as in developing addition international capacity.

The mobile market remains vibrant despite a continued duopoly between Unitel and Angola Telecom’s Movicel. There has been particularly good progress in LTE network development into 2016. A new unified licensing regime should accelerate growth in the mobile sector in coming years.

The government has aimed to develop telecom infrastructure in a bid to diversify the country’s economy and lessen its dependence on offshore crude oil production, which accounts for almost all exports and up to 80% of tax revenue. By extending and upgrading telecom networks the government expects businesses to become more efficient and for e-commerce to become a more prominent feature of economic growth.

EV-DO and WiMAX-based fixed-wireless as well as 3G and 4G (LTE) mobile broadband services are now also providing more internet access choices for consumers, competing with Angola Telecom’s DSL, cable modem and Fibre-to-the-premises (FttP) services.

Access pricing has fallen with the landing of WACS, the second international fibre optic submarine cable in the country. This followed years of monopolisation by Angola Telecom of the SAT-3/WASC cable, the only international cable serving the country until 2012.

Angola Telecom is going through a restructuring process with the help of international consultants, which is seen as a step towards greater liberalisation of the country’s telecom market, improved efficiency of the national telco and its eventual privatisation.

A majority stake in its mobile unit, Movicel has already been sold to private investors and a migration from CDMA to GSM/UMTS/LTE technology has delivered a boost to the mobile market in the past two years. Angola Telecom has national and international fibre, copper and satellite infrastructure assets worth billions of dollars.

As part of the restructuring program, the government injected more than $300 million into the company in 2012 alone. Angola is preparing to launch its first own communications satellite into orbit in early 2017.
