CAPE TOWN, South Africa, June 30 /PRNewswire/ --

Angola and Mozambique are amongst the most promising telecommunications markets in Africa and have high potential for growth. Both are emerging from decades of civil war into boom periods of reconstruction.


Both of these countries have become hot spots for global investors and there are plenty of opportunities in the mobile communications sector, says Frost Sullivan ICT research analyst Silvia Venter. While there are many challenges in these markets, the returns available on investment make them highly attractive.

To offer decision makers a comprehensive overview of the Angolan and Mozambican mobile telecommunications markets, the ICT group at Frost Sullivan will be hosting an online analyst briefing on Wednesday 8 July 2009 at 2:00 pm BST/ 3:00pm CAT.

The level of competition in these markets is still very low and the telecommunications infrastructure is underdeveloped. This means there are many opportunities for companies able to offer the needed technologies.

Mobile operators could benefit from an emerging middle class as well as from the demands for business solutions from the many companies that are establishing themselves in these countries, Venter says. The SEACOM and EASSy cables, both due to land in Mozambique, will also expand opportunities due to an increased demand for bandwidth from both consumers and enterprises.

This session will cover the main opportunities available in the mobile communications market in both countries and provide a comparative analysis of the markets in each. The drivers and restraints affecting market growth, as well as market sizing and forecasts for the next seven years will be discussed.

The discussion will benefit companies already present in Angola and Mozambique as well as operators and vendors interested in expanding into both countries.
