Namibia Telecommunications, Mobile Phone and Broadband Market Statistics and Analysis Report 2022 –

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The report “Namibia – Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband – Statistics and Analyses” has been added to from offer.

Namibian MTC makes progress in network expansion Under its 2019 National Broadband Policy, the government aimed to achieve 95% coverage of the population by 2024, providing service of at least 2 Mb/s. The policy has rolling targets through 2029, while the associated implementation action plan includes programs through 2024.

These various measures aim to reduce the digital divide by facilitating investment in IP services and encouraging the adoption of services. Mobile network coverage has increased significantly in recent years. At the start of 2021, 3G infrastructure provided coverage of 89% of the population while LTE infrastructure provided 79% coverage (compared to only 40% a year earlier).

Developments with 5G have been delayed by unfounded public concerns about the technology’s health implications, despite the government asking the regulator to accelerate its 5G development strategy. The increase in mobile broadband subscribers seen since 2018 has been partly attributed to MTC’s 081Every1 campaign, which aims to provide nationwide coverage and improve data speeds on its 3G and LTE networks.

Phase 1 of the project was completed in June 2020, while Phase 2 was essentially complete by early 2022. Phase 3 is expected to be completed by September 2022.

The work undertaken by MTC contributed to the 8.5% increase in the number of mobile broadband subscribers in the year to June 2021, reaching 1.877 million. The regulator noted that the industry’s continued growth has also been supported by the popularity of internet-enabled prepaid SIM cards over PC and laptop usage.
