There are many problems in the Central African Republic that negatively affect telecommunications market development; they are high inflation, lack of network infrastructure etc. These phenomena are the result of conflicts in the country that began in 2013. However, at the moment, there is a steady growth in telecommunications. The average rate in the Central African Republic is $0.12 per minute, but are there opportunities for stable earning on termination?
Mobile penetration in the country is 43%, which is quite low for the region. Nevertheless, this telecommunications sector is the most developed one and continues to develop; the number of connections is about 2.06 million now. There is competition in the mobile communications market in the Central African Republic - four GSM operators compete with each other, which has a positive effect on pricing. They are Moov, Telecel, Azur, Orange.
Coverage in the country is not very good; only 17 cities have access to mobile networks, which is about 30 percent of the population. Therefore, first make sure you have a stable signal in the area you choose and only then locate the GSM gateways there. Also, please note that with the limited GSM coverage, complete shutdown of mobile networks throughout the country occurs regularly.
Prepaid SIM cards are sold in all cities of the Central African Republic and anyone can buy them without showing their ID. Therefore, you should not have problems with the purchase of a large number of new cards. Cellular communication in the country is inexpensive - there are package offers from local operators, within which a minute of a call will cost about $0.02. Thus, your earnings can make 500 dollars and more from each GoIP 4 gateway port.
