Telecommunications in Africa

Oxford University Press

Experiencing a crucial revolutionary period, the telecommunications sector of the Southern African countries has been reformed in terms of their corporate ownership, security of international trade, and rationalization of the industry. These changes are the consequences of innovative opportunities in the exportation of products, specifically in Eastern Europe and other parts of Africa. Although there is increasing competition in the telephone market, growth in equipment production is anchored upon the effectiveness and efficiency of regulations pertaining to the operations of telecom services. Moreover, even if the South African communication technology providers experience further competition in the local scene, modified administration has heightened the expansion rate of technology infrastructure so as to cater to the necessities and demands of previously disadvantaged societies.
