Algeria's fixed-line penetration was in decline for a number of years before the trend was reversed in 2015. This recovery is likely to continue to the end of the decade as infrastructure is extended to hitherto underserved areas as part of the Universal Service Telecommunications (UTS) program. Three Universal Service Telecommunications licences were awarded in early 2016, with licensees obliged to provide fixed and wireless telecoms services to all communities.

The country's relatively well developed infrastructure includes a national fibre backbone which is being augmented with a new subsea link to Valencia (expected to be ready for service in February 2017), as well as a new 4,500km terrestrial Trans-Saharan Backbone network to which Algeria became a partner in September 2016.

Mobile penetration stands at about 108%, which is relatively low by regional standards. The regulator was slow to issue 3G licences, while LTE were not awarded until May 2016. By the following September all three licensed mobile network operators had launched LTE services. Coverage obligations, together with investments made in the intervening months, suggest that LTE will be extended rapidly in coming years, and will go far to delivering mobile broadband to rural areas as per the UTS program.



Key Developments:

Government announces plans to restructure Algerie Telecom and sell a stake to investors; regulator awards three Universal Telecommunications Service licences to provide basic telecom services in underserved areas; Orval cable system linking Oran with Valencia to be ready for service in early 2017; Alcatel-Lucent completes network upgrade for Ooredoo; Algerian Space Agency planning launch of Algeria's first telecommunications satellite by June 2017; SNTF and Kapsch CarrierCom set up Rail-Telecom JV to maintain railway telecom networks; government proposes legislation enforcing LLU access; Company of Telecommunications Infrastructure Algeria set up to manage a national fibre network; report update includes the regulator's market data update for 2015, telcos' financial and operating data to Q2 2016, recent market data developments.
