Increased mobility will further spur the market as end users look to gain access to high-speed mobile, data, and voice services at all times. New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (http://www.ipcommunications.frost.com), Southern African Broadband Market Analysis, finds that in 2012, Mozambique and Namibia earned revenues of $78.3 million and $51.1 million; respectively, and are expected to reach $146.5 million and $78.8 million in 2017. The reduction in prices as a result of intense competition between mobile and fixed operators is fuelling the uptake of broadband services in Southern Africa. "In Mozambique, the entrance of a third mobile operator, Movitel, is spurring the market by targeting rural areas and low-income groups with lower prices than its competitors," said Frost & Sullivan Information & Communication Technologies Industry Analyst Naila Govan-Vassen.
