Since there is quite a lot of evidence on the long history of Ethiopia's telecommunications, this chapter gives some of the main figures and facts along with a concise analysis of the country's advancement efforts towards its communication technology. The discussion here is divided into three sections. First, the chapter provides an overview of the geographical location of Ethiopia; the economic background and natural reserves; human and other material resources; and demographical information. This is followed by an outline of the introduction, expansion, and innovation of the telecommunications system, particularly from 1894 to 1941—the period that marks the sector's postwar reconstruction and rehabilitation, the transformation of the system's institutional structure, and the accomplishments and challenges thereafter. The latter part of this chapter contains commentaries on the provision and progression of telecommunications services in Ethiopia given more recenteconomic goals and shifts in government structures.
