More than 50 operators rely on CDMA-2000 technology to provide fixed-wireless access.

Many African nations witnessed the introduction of international submarine fiber optic cables as late as 2009 and 2010. More cables are forecast to go online throughout 2012, boosting supply and providing cheaper international bandwidth. Several nations are developing national fiber backbone networks to cater to consumers outside of capital cities.
