The insider report 'National Broadband Plans in AME: Governments Leverage the Private Sector to Achieve Ambitious Targets' offers an overview of efforts taken by the government in the AME region to develop the broadband infrastructure. It delivers comprehensive proprietary data and insights from our research into NBPs adopted by AME countries. This presentation-quality report provides an analysis of governments’ initiatives and operators' involvement in broadband infrastructure development.

Key Findings:

  • The region features significant differences in broadband penetration levels among countries in Africa and the Middle East owing to differences in the income levels and the maturity of telecom sector
  • African countries are mainly targeting to improve broadband penetration nationally. Middle Eastern countries have included targets to reduce the digital divide in the country by improving broadband connectivity in rural areas
  • Numerous countries with low broadband penetration are targeting to provide broadband coverage with relatively lower speed in the short term, however, long-term targets include provision of broadband services with faster speed
  • Funding of the NBPs poses the challenge in many AME countries. In addition to providing direct funds from budgets and universal service funds, governments have been encouraging private investments by regulatory reforms that reduce barriers to entry and encourage infrastructure sharing

Synopsis:

'National Broadband Plans in AME: Governments Leverage the Private-Sector to Achieve Ambitious Targets,’ a new Telecom Insider Report, provides an overview of the national broadband plans (NBP) adopted by the governments in Africa and the Middle East (AME) region.

It provides in-depth analysis of the following:

  • Regional market context analyzing the impact of economic development on broadband penetration in several AME countries
  • Analysis of priorities set under NBPs such as targets, technology, funding and role of governments as well as private operators
  • Case studies on three countries’ NBP with focus on analysis of targets, goals, government initiatives, operators’ involvement and progress over the period
  • Key findings, detailing the analysis of NBPs on several parameters such as targets, funding strategies, preferred technologies and strategies adopted by government to achieve the targets

  • Countries in Africa and the Middle East (AME) are increasingly adopting national broadband plans (NBPs) or national strategies as a tool to improve broadband connectivity with an aim to stimulate economic growth.
  • The two key goals pursued by governments in the AME region is to improve broadband connectivity but also to reduce the digital divide between urban and rural broadband availability. For instance, Tunisia has a target to provide broadband coverage to 60% of households by 2018. Other examples include Morocco, Egypt and Israel, among others.
  • The governments in the region are also aiming to provide speed and quality of broadband services. Examples include Kenya’s targets to provide 40Mbps broadband services in urban areas by the end of 2017 and increasing the speed to 2Gbps by 2030. 
  • AME countries are inclined towards fiber owing to its capability to deliver faster broadband speeds. However, the high deployment cost of fiber networks is pushing governments to augment their NBPs with 4G technologies. 
  • Governments have been encouraging investments from the private sector by introducing regulatory measures to facilitate the entry of new competition and encourage infrastructure sharing.

In this report, we describe the market context for national broadband plans. We then analyze various NBPs in terms of their targets, technologies, funding strategies and the roles of governments and the private sector. Then we bring in evidence from case studies of NBPs from three countries across the region: South Africa, Kenya and Oman. We conclude with a set of key findings.
