There is a stark contrast between near-monopoly returns in some MENA markets and very little movement in others.
The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region encompasses some of the most- and least-advanced countries in the world terms of next-generation access (NGA). Operators in countries that are between these two extremes are assessing the long-term economic case for fibre. This report analyses and forecasts coverage (premises passed), conversion (active connections as a percentage of premises passed) and capex for FTTx architecture and technologies in MENA during 2011–2020.
The forecasts include the following metrics:
coverage (premises passed)
conversion (premises with active connections as a percentage of premises passed)
capex (split into network and connection)
Split by technology:
FTTP (split into incumbent and alternative operator).
