The Kingdom of Morocco is home to stunning, yet diverse geographical regions – rugged mountains, large tracts of desert and a dramatic coastline. With a population of over 35 million, the country’s telecommunications market is one of the most well-developed on the African continent. That said, the Moroccan economy is a developing one, and faces the same challenges that are typical to any developing region.
Morocco Satellite Internet Access
Today, the amount of Internet users across Morocco stands at just over 20 million, which results in a penetration rate of 57.3 percent. Morocco represents a huge market for Internet, and the majority of people that have access to the Internet use it daily.
Morocco’s economy is highly dependent on its phosphate mining industry. The country is the world’s largest exporter of phosphates with two thirds of the planet’s phosphate reserves. This type of mining and processing is responsible for 50 percent of Morocco’s income. The mining industry is reliant upon satellite-based connectivity for fast and reliable links where there is no other method available. Due to the remote nature of these mines and to enhance safety on site, VSAT provides a rapid, cost-effective and reliable solution.
The tourism industry is very well developed in Morocco and second only to its thriving phosphate industry. Exotic, yet considered safe, the country can offer tourists a varied experience. However, to fully appreciate the true Moroccan experience, tourists are often required to leave the beaten track, yet they are not prepared to give up access to their smartphone and social media. Connectivity for both tourists and tour companies is therefore more important than ever and for the more remote areas where tourism thrives, satellite provides the only solution to a lack of connectivity.
Though Morocco is well on its way to becoming better connected, satellite-based connectivity and especially VSAT, has a large role to play within the country. The proliferation of the smart phone and other devices, coupled with the need for business connectivity in remote regions where terrestrial connectivity does not reach, mean that satellite is often the go-to communications solution.
