DUBLIN, December 30, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — “ICT and Telecommunications in Ethiopia The 2021 report” has been added to from ResearchAndMarkets.com offer.
The Ethiopian government is the main driver of growth in the ICT sector as the main customer of ICT companies and majority shareholder of the sole telecommunications company Ethio Telecom. In terms of the government’s Growth and Transformation Plan 2, ICT will provide a stepping stone towards achieving the national vision of becoming a middle-income country by 2025. Recently Ethiopia opened up the sector to the private sector by offering two telecom operator licenses (one of which has been awarded) and indicating that it will sell 40% of Ethio Telecom, which it owns.
The government plans to liberalize the telecom market and modernize the telecom infrastructure. Mobile SIM card and broadband penetration is low compared to other developing countries due to high mobile tariffs and poor network coverage in the country. While 2G networks are widely available, 4G coverage is limited to Addis Ababa. Ethiopia also has a particularly low level of international connectivity. E-commerce is in its infancy Ethiopia and is rarely used, although mobile banking is growing.
There is the local assembly of mobile phones, and the innovation and localization for Ethiopian use such as an Amharic keyboard.
