The mobile sector of Namibia is well developed; cellular penetration has reached 105% there (with a population of over 2.5 million people). This is a good prerequisite for starting a traffic termination business. But what about the Internet segment? To make money on calls landing, you will need a stable Internet with sufficient speed.
Internet penetration in this African country is about 31% (0.811 million users). The Internet services market in Namibia is represented by not too many Internet service providers. Among the main ones are Telecom Namibia and Africa Online. The broadband sector development has long been limited by high tariffs for international bandwidth, since the country did not have direct connection to international fiber optic cables. In 2011, the situation improved as soon as a WACS cable had been laid in Namibia.
Also, the Internet services market made a great leap forward upon launching of LTE networks and thanks to investments in the national fiber optic infrastructure. Today, the users can connect to the Internet operating at different technologies such as DSL, Fiber-Optic, WiMax, etc.
An average Internet Bandwidth in Namibia is 2.9 Mbps. This will be enough for work with a minimum number of channels. But if you use a bunch of voip gateway raspberry equipment with a large number of ports, we recommend connecting the Internet at a speed of at least 5 Mbps. Despite the low average rate in Namibia, it is still possible to connect a faster Internet - mainly in large cities.
