The ancient country of Egypt lies in Northern Africa and is bordered by the Gaza Strip, Israel, the Red Sea, Sudan and Libya. Egypt’s economy is underpinned by agriculture as its fertile location in the Nile Valley has enabled the country to thrive for millennia. Aside from agriculture, other main industries include tourism, natural gas and petroleum imports. The population of Egypt numbers approximately 92 million making the country the most populous in North Africa.
The telecommunications infrastructure in Egypt is solid and is one of the most highly developed on the African continent. The government is focused on the development of the technology and ICT industry within the country and is keen to attract foreign investment. The country is well-connected through fibre and also submarine cable access and offers relatively low prices for DSL broadband services. There are many Internet Service Providers in Eqypt and this competitive environment has helped to keep prices down. However, the main growth in telecommunications has come from the mobile broadband sector where the current penetration rate of mobile ownership stands at 111%. There is a hunger for emerging applications such as m-Banking and mobile TV. LTE licenses have been granted but have been delayed and, despite the fact that the infrastructure is in place, Internet data rates are slow.
For satellite Internet, there is definite opportunity in Egypt. With LTE and 4G networks still very nascent in the country and with low data rates on offer, satellite can offer a reliable, rapid solution for the provision of high speed data services.
