Sub-Saharan Africa's (SSA's) telecoms service market will be worth USD54.1 billion in 2021, up from USD45.5 billion in 2016. Retail revenue will account for 92.7% of this (USD50.2 billion), while wholesale revenue will account for the remaining share of telecoms service revenue.

This report and associated data annex provide:

  • an interim update of our 5-year forecast published in October 2016) of more than 175 mobile and fixed KPIs for SSA as a whole and for 11 key countries
