The Cote d’Ivoire (Ivory Coast) is home to 23 million people and is the world’s largest exporter of cocoa. The country is situated in West Africa and borders Ghana, Liberia, Mali and Burkina Faso. It is a land of forests, savannah and lagoons and this diverse geography attracts many tourists each year – a growing part of the economy. Though Cote d’Ivoire is renowned for its cocoa, palm oil and coffee production and has been largely reliant upon agriculture, discovery of oil reserves in 2012 meant that oil and gas overtook cocoa as the dominant industry. The country has been developing the sector ever since. With steady GDP, the Cote d’Ivoire boasts a well-developed economy.
The government is very keen to develop the telecommunications infrastructure across the country. At present, there are just over 5 million Internet users in Cote d’Ivoire and the government is focusing on offering converged fixed-line and mobile voice and data services. As it stands, the Internet and broadband sectors in the country require development. Though the country has access to two submarine cables, the price of bandwidth is high. 3G mobile services are quite widely available after a 3G licence was awarded in 2012 and the mobile sector is relatively strong. In addition, the government is building out a national backbone network that will enable a digital economy in coming years.
Though the Cote d’Ivoire is a country that is relatively well developed, there is still a great deal of the population that is without any Internet connectivity and areas where communications development is required. BusinessCom Networks offer a portfolio of satellite broadband Internet solutions for individuals, businesses, agencies or organisations that are tailored to specific requirements. This means that we are able to meet the needs of a huge range of customers in Cote d’Ivoire.
