Cullen International published a new version of its Telecoms "Country Profiles" for the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. This updated edition now also includes coverage of Sudan, in addition to the 12 MENA countries previously covered.
The country profiles provide in-depth coverage of the telecoms sector in each country: the policies and strategies; regulatory agenda; the main legislation and regulatory instruments; the licensing framework; and market statistics.
In Sudan, the main priority is to expand the telecommunications networks including rural and less developed areas.
The biggest mobile operator in terms of subscribers in Sudan covers 90%, 46% and 27% of population with 2G, 3G and 4G networks respectively, while the fixed telephony service penetration per inhabitant was 0.35% by the end of 2017.
The Ministry of Communications and Information Technology of Sudan wants to encourage private investment in the telecoms sector and to increase coverage of mobile and fixed networks.
The telecommunications and post regulatory authority launched universal service projects to cover 206 of unserved areas in Sudan. The existing operators will build networks in those areas, but the universal service fund will cover the cost of building these networks.
