With a population of more than 21.7 million people, the Republic of Niger has a 40% cellular penetration as of 2017. A well-developed mobile sector combined with a rather high average rate ($ 0.16 per minute of the call) opens up ample opportunities for earning on termination of voice traffic minutes. Due to low tariffs for local cellular communication, the income of the terminator can be more than 500 dollars.
Niger is the largest country in West Africa, and one of the poorest countries in the world. The poorly developed telecommunications infrastructure of fixed telephony, due to a lack of investment, has caused the growth of the mobile sector. A similar situation is observed in many other African countries. To date, the penetration rate of cellular communications has already reached 40%.
Several GSM operators operate on the market of the Republic of Niger. The leader is Airtel, with a subscriber base of 4 million users. The second and third places in the market are occupied by Orange and Moov, their services are used by 1.6 million and 1 million people respectively. In Niger, there is also a mobile operator Niger Telecom. It came into being in late 2016, as a result of the merger of two state-owned companies: Sonitel - a fixed-line provider, and Sahel-Com - a provider of mobile communications. It is expected that the new GSM operator will work more efficiently, by exchanging resources and infrastructure. But while the share of Niger Telecom in the mobile market is less than 5%.
