Senegal's telecom market revenues up nearly 5% in 2019, investments jump 71%

Monday 20 July 2020 | 12:20 CET | News
Telecom operators in Senegal generated annual revenues of XOF 763 billion in 2019 across the fixed and mobile segments, representing a year-on-year increase of 4.6 percent, according to the latest annual report from regulator ARTP. This progression was mainly driven by an improved performance by Sonatel in the fixed segment. Revenues from mobile operators amounted to XOF 467 billion (61% of the telecom sector), increasing by 0.7 percent from 2018. Sonatel achieved by far the largest share of telecom revenues (82.4%), followed by Saga Africa Holdings (11.5%) and Expresso (5.9%).
