Chad is one of the least developed countries in Africa, and this also applies to telecommunications infrastructure. Mobile and Internet penetration are significantly lower than average in the region. Nevertheless, there is a rather high rate in this area, and cellular communication within the country is cheap, which allows earning on calls termination. Also, the country has a lot of traffic, due to the population of 16.3 million people. Let's discus the GSM termination market features in the Republic of Chad in more detail.
It is not easy to maintain mobile networks in Chad and it takes a lot of money. Such difficulties are associated with specific weather conditions and interruptions of power supply. GSM coverage in the country is only 85% of the Republic of Chad.
The mobile phone market is not keeping pace with the demand for the services, which is constantly growing. The cellular penetration rate in the country now is 37%. This is a low indicator, but, given the large population, there are many connections in the country (more than 5.7 million). There are three GSM operators in Chad:
- Salam Mobile.
99% of subscribers use the mobile services provided by Airtel and Tigo. Only 1% of the country's residents use the services of Salam Mobile, so its SIM cards should not be used for termination (there is too little voice traffic passing through this operator, and your earnings depend on it).
The cost of one SIM-card in Chad is about $1.7, and you immediately get $0.84 on your balance, it is a welcome bonus. Local calls cost about $0.04 per minute. Thus, in the Republic of Chad, you can earn at least $100 from each goip 4 gateway port.
