Morocco retains one of the most advanced telecommunications markets in Africa, featuring a majority-privatised, highly profitable incumbent telco in Maroc Telecom and three fixed and mobile network operators. The country also has one of the highest mobile penetration rates in the region and some of the lowest prices on the continent for broadband internet access. The fixed-line market has experienced a renaissance, following the launch of the second and third network operators (Meditel and Wana/Inwi) and fuelled by the growing demand for broadband services. Most of the new connections are wireless and increasingly converging with mobile services. To accommodate the increasing amount of voice and internet traffic, the operators are upgrading their fibre optic national backbone networks and international connectivity. The sale of Vivendi's 53% stake in Maroc Telecom to Etisalat was closed in May 2014.
