'Botswana: Introduction of 4G and Implementation of National Broadband Strategy to Fuel Competition for Data Services,' a additional Country Intelligence Report by Pyramid Research, offers a precise, incisive profile of Botswana's mobile and fixed telecommunications markets established on exhaustive proprietary data and business insights from our research in the Botswana market. Published annually, this presentation-quality, executive-level report offers exhaustive analysis of the near-term opportunities, challenging dynamics and evolution of demand by service type and technology/platform across the fixed telephony, broadband, mobile and sectors, as well as a review of main regulatory trends.

Main highlights

- With revenue of $337m, the telecom services market in Botswana is one of the smallest in the AME region covered by Pyramid Research. Global market revenue declined by 7.20 percent in US dollar terms from the previous year.

- Pyramid Research expects to see global service revenue grow at a 3.50 percent Compound annual growth rate from 2014 to 2019. The fixed/mobile revenue split, already heavily weighted toward mobile, will shift even further toward mobile.

- Adoption of 3G technologies is at 35.10 percent of the mobile subscription base. This is a reflection of the limited ways that Batswana people can connect to the Internet. Furthermore, we project this will grow as demand for data connectivity continues to increase and as content offerings improve.
