South Africa’s telecom sector boasts the continent’s most advanced networks in terms of technology deployed and services provided. Under a converging regulatory regime, hundreds of alternative service providers are pushing into the market with converged services. The end of the incumbent’s monopoly on international submarine fibre optic cables has reduced the cost of telecommunication in South Africa dramatically. Three new cables have reached the country in the past few years despite regulatory hurdles. Key regulatory matters currently shaping the market include mergers and acquisitions, the licensing of WiMAX and LTE spectrum as well as digital dividend spectrum, the unbundling of the local loop (ULL, or LLU), and the reduction of interconnect charges.

DETAILS

With a 56% Internet penetration rate by the end of 2019, South Africa is well above the continent’s average rate, but still far from the standards of technologically advanced countries. Combined fixed-line and mobile-cellular teledensity is roughly 140 telephones per 100 persons; it consists of carrier-equipped open-wire lines, coaxial cables, microwave radio relay links, fiber-optic cable, radiotelephone communication stations, and wireless local loops.

TELECOMS MARKET

In a virtually saturated voice market, four mobile networks are competing for market share in the next growth wave, mobile broadband. Following years of delays with its licensing, the second fixed-line operator Neotel has gained market share in competition with the incumbent, Telkom. Although other sweeping liberalisation measures were also delayed by years, this has changed the country’s telecoms landscape fundamentally, and resulted in lower prices for consumers. The Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) is the regulator for the South African communications, broadcasting and postal services sector.

BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT

South Africa is a middle-income, emerging market with an abundant supply of natural resources; well-developed financial, legal, communications, energy, and transport sectors; and a stock exchange that is Africa’s largest and among the top 20 in the world. Economic growth has decelerated in recent years, slowing to just 1.5% in 2014. Unemployment, poverty, and inequality – among the highest in the world – remain a challenge. Official unemployment is roughly 25% of the work force, and runs significantly higher among black youth. Even though the country’s modern infrastructure supports a relatively efficient distribution of goods to major urban centers throughout the region, unstable electricity supplies retard growth.

South Africa’s economic policy has focused on controlling inflation; however, the country faces structural constraints that also limit economic growth, such as skills shortages, declining global competitiveness and frequent work stoppages due to strike action. The current government faces growing pressure from urban constituencies to improve the delivery of basic services to low-income areas and to increase job growth.
