Senegal adds 120,000 mobile lines in Q3

Monday 18 December 2017 | 09:16 CET | News
Senegal's mobile subscriptions rose by nearly 120,000 in the three months to September, reaching 15.557 million overall, according to national regulator ARTP. While growing for a third consecutive quarter, the total market was down from the year-earlier period, following the cull of unregistered SIMs in the last three months of 2016, as part of the country's anti-terrorism measures. Mobile penetration increased to 105.1 percent, compared to 102.6 percent in December 2016.
