Development of Algeria's fixed-line broadband market has long been hampered by the limited reach of the fixed-line network and the capability of the infrastructure to provide broadband services. This created an environment which encouraged alternative operators to invest in fixed-wireless accesses. The licensing of 3G spectrum to the three mobile network operators in late 2013 and the provision of LTE by all three MNOs since September 2016 has done much to ensure the availability of mobile internet access across the country. In addition, three telcos were awarded Universal Telecommunications Service (UTS) authorisations in early 2016 which will provide wireless or fixed telecoms services to underserved areas.

The government is also looking at provisions to enable players to access Algerie Telecom's infrastructure through local loop unbundling, thus ending the incumbent's effective monopoly on DSL-based services. Improved international connectivity has substantially reduced the cost of broadband services in recent years. Algerie Telecom continues to invest to expand its national fibre infrastructure, while the government has committed funds towards its national broadband program despite declining revenue from the falling price of oil which has put pressure on its overall investments.

This report contains an overview of Algeria's internet and broadband market, providing key statistics, profiles of the major players, and scenario forecasts for the market to 2021.
