Yearly growth for these countries was just over 3% from 2005 to 2009, reports MarketLine.

Africa represents the market with the fastest rate of growth within the global fixed-line market, reports BuddeComm. Around 35% of countries on the African continent recorded double or triple digit growth in the fixed line telecommunications industry in 2010. Due to obstacles to the development of the fixed line sector, 90% of telephone subscribers in Africa in 2011 were mobile users.

The potential for market growth in the limited-mobility or lower-cost fixed services is vast. Broadband internet demand is fuelling development of the fixed line telecommunications sector, though obstacles such as copper theft and vandalism are still proving such a challenge that market players are opting for fixed-wireless solutions over fixed lines to provide data and voice services. More than 50 operators rely on CDMA-2000 technology to provide fixed-wireless access.

Many African nations witnessed the introduction of international submarine fiber optic cables as late as 2009 and 2010. More cables are forecast to go online throughout 2012, boosting supply and providing cheaper international bandwidth. Several nations are developing national fiber backbone networks to cater to consumers outside of capital cities. Companies will also continue to take advantage of satellite services to reach remote and rural regions.
