It also contains our estimate of the market data relating to the end of 2014 and an update of our five-year forecasts to 2019 for the mobile, fixed-line and internet sectors. From the five states, Botswana and Mauritius clearly stand out as more dynamic and higher performing markets in terms of both mobile penetration as well as 3G/4G developments.
