BMI View: The BMI Q3 2015 West and Central Africa report analyses latest industry, regulatory andmacroeconomic developments and trends in the telecommunications market in seven countries: Cameroon,Côte d' Ivoire, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Gabon, Mali, Mauritania and Senegal. Stronggrowth over the past decade will inevitably lead to more saturated market dynamics towards 2019 andbeyond as operators will increasingly shift towards advanced data services to sustain and build on revenuegeneration. The efforts of operators will be complemented by the uptake of low-cost smartphones andmobile devices along with access to cheap and more reliable international bandwidth connectivity viasubmarine cables. Nevertheless, 3G and 4G shares will remain relatively low than more advanced Middle-Eastern countries.
