Morocco's mobile market has one of the highest penetration rates in the region, at about 133% by the end of 2015. All three mobile network operators also offer fixed-line or fixed-wireless services, and the boundaries between fixed and mobile services are disappearing as technologies and services provided by these players converge.

The mobile operators have become the main providers of internet services through their 3G and LTE networks. The auction of spectrum for LTE use in March 2015 was quickly followed by the commercial launch of LTE services by all three MNOs. Licence conditions will ensure that LTE covers at least 65% of the population by 2020. This infrastructure, and anticipated subscriber take-up, will further consolidate the dominance in mobile players in the broadband sector.
The principal telco, the incumbent Maroc Telecom, has undergone a strategic review following its acquisition of Etisalat's mobile businesses in several markets in the region. These additional international markets are providing a welcome boost to the company's overall revenue.
This report contains an overview and analysis of Morocco's mobile telephony sector, including updated statistics, assessments of recent regulatory measures, details on licensing regimes and spectrum auctions, and profiles of the major players.
