Morocco Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband Statistics and Analyses 2019 -

DUBLIN--()--The "Morocco - Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband - Statistics and Analyses" report has been added to's offering.

This report provides a comprehensive overview of trends and developments in Morocco's telecommunications market. The report analyses the fixed-line, mobile and broadband sectors.

Morocco has developed one of the most advanced telecommunications markets in Africa, supported by the government's Maroc Digital 2020 strategy to encourage the development of a digital economy and on the National Broadband Plan which aims to provide fixed or mobile broadband access to the entire population by 2022. The part-privatised incumbent telco Maroc Telecom remains the dominant player in the fixed-line sector though has effective competition in the mobile sector. A key regional player, Orange Group, entered the market through the acquisition of a major stake in the telco Mdi Telecom.

Morocco's fixed-line broadband market is dominated by Maroc Telecom. Despite regulatory efforts to enforce LLU and wholesale pricing, there is little in the way of access to its networks and as a result, the fixed-line broadband market has not developed to its potential. Nevertheless, a small number of operators, including Inwi and Orange Morocco, have begun to offer competing DSL services, albeit limited in reach. Despite these market limitations and Maroc Telecom's near-monopoly, Morocco has developed some of the lowest broadband prices and highest penetration rates in Africa. This has been helped by the excellent connectivity to international fibre cables.

The introduction and extension of mobile broadband services have gone far to improving access nationally. Mobile internet by mid-2019 accounted for 93.2% of all internet connections, leaving Maroc Telecom's DSL service with most of the remainder. The dominance of mobile internet access is likely to continue given the improvements in LTE reach and capabilities, and the preference among consumers to adopt mobile solutions for both voice and data.

This report analyses Morocco's fixed-line, broadband and mobile telephony sectors, including statistics, assessments of recent regulatory measures, details on licensing regimes and spectrum auctions, and profiles of the major players. The report also includes a range of subscriber forecasts to 2024.
