Guinea prepares to abolish international roaming charges
Guinea's telecommunications sector showed triple-digit growth for the three year following the entry of two international operators, MTN Group and Orange Group. The mobile market now has four competing networks, and though growth slowed in 2015 this was largely due to the rationalisation of dormant SIM cards among operators. The other competitors are Intercel and Cellcom. The debt-stricken incumbent fixed-line operator Sotelgui operated its Lagui mobile unit before it closed down in late 2012.

Following the exit of Telekom Malaysia in 2008, Sotelgui has being prepared for renewed privatisation, creating an attractive opportunity for a strategic investor. Despite the rapid growth in the mobile sector, penetration remains below the African average, while the country's fixed-line and internet markets are virtually untapped.

Broadband services are still very limited and expensive. The landing of the first international fibre optic submarine cable in 2012, and the setting up of an IXP in mid-2013, will go far to help the nascent broadband market develop by reducing the cost of internet bandwidth and improving the reliability of infrastructure.
The country slipped into a mild recession in 2009, but stable GDP growth of around 5% per year is expected from 2014, possibly reaching up to 20% in 2015 and 2016.
