Liberia is the poorest country in West Africa, and across the continent it takes 3rd place on the level of poverty. This is due largely to the civil war, which lasted from 1999 to 2003. The unemployment rate is 85%, which is one of the highest rates in the world. This led to the emigration of local residents in other African countries. Due to the fact that migrants make calls to home en masse, the amount of international traffic in Liberia increases.
In Liberia, the possession of the SIM-boxes for termination is illegal. However, experts of the cellular services market note that there are no special equipment and technological systems that can identify such equipment effectively, like in other countries. At the same time, Liberian Telecommunications Authority, the regulatory body of Liberia in the telecommunications industry, as well as the International Gateway Management System are very concerned about the traffic termination in the country.
