New LTE licenses have been awar d ed and the government ' s consolidation through the revocation of the licences of the smaller players leaves market leaders Orange, MTN and Maroc Telecom free to create a more rational competitive landscape . The strong macroeconomic outlook , as well as demand for advance d services such as mobile money, make s the country a bright spot in the region for telecoms operators.
