Presented By: Kerem Arsal, Manager, Africa and Middle East

Findings that will be explored in this upcoming webinar include:

  • Mobile Internet revenue will maintain an explosive growth rate in the AME region and it will double in size to represent a $25bn opportunity by 2018.
  • Today, there are slightly more than 5 million households with FTTH broadband in AME. By 2018, this figure will have risen to more than 16 million.
  • In 2018, one in every two subscriptions will be running either on LTE or on 3G networks. Today, it is one in every four subscriptions.
  • Thanks to relatively liberal licensing regimes that partly offset the economic uncertainties of the region, commercial LTE services can be found in close to 10 sub-Saharan countries already.

"It is no doubt that AME is a region of high risks and high returns, and therefore in its markets, information is the most valuable resource," says Arsal. "That is why we would like to invite you to this webinar, where you will find insights drawn from our Africa/Middle East research, which has expanded to cover 44 countries, corresponding to 95% of the GDP in the region."
