YooMee aims to deploy more LTE in West and Central Africa

Olusegun Abolaji Ogundeji | April 9, 2014
YooMee plans to follow its launch of West Africa's first TD-LTE network in Côte d'Ivoire last weekend with expansion to other areas of West and Central Africa.

According to Quantum-Web's Africa Broadband Tariffs Analysis released Monday, broadband pricing in the African continent in the fourth quarter of last year declined slightly compared to the previous quarter, with the introduction and availability of LTE services in Algeria, Namibia and South Africa leading to a drop in wireless broadband prices in those countries.

"In the next few years, more commercialized LTE networks will be deployed in West Africa by operators," Li said. "Enterprises could be a huge revenue source for LTE but with its large capacity and low latency, LTE is a more cost-effective way to replace traditional ways to provide enterprise services. More subscribers will be connected through capable LTE devices in this region."
