From The Report: Cote d'Ivoire 2022
View in Online Reader

Côte d’Ivoire is one of the most developed telecommunications markets in West Africa. Its mobile phone penetration rate was 162% in 2021 and continues to grow as Ivorians use multiple SIM cards to take advantage of promotional offers. There is strong competition between the existing mobile network operators, each of which has invested heavily in expanding and improving their coverage and services.

Expanded fixed-line internet infrastructure is also a key development, with a growing number of Ivorians signing up for fixed-line fibre-optic internet services.
