Djibouti seals landing station deal for the DARE cable system
Djibouti is one of the few remaining countries in which the national telco, Djibouti Telecom (DT), has a monopoly on all telecom services, including fixed lines, mobile, internet and broadband. The lack of competition has meant that the market has not lived up to its potential. While domestic infrastructure remains poor the country is one of the best connected for international fibre cables in the region. The Djibouti Internet Exchange is a meeting point for a number of cable systems passing between the Red Sea and Indian Ocean.
Despite this connectivity, broadband services in Djibouti remain very expensive, which continues to hold back the full growth potential of the sector. As a result penetration in all market segments is low. Although growth in the mobile and internet markets is accelerating in line with DT’s investment in its mobile network, competition and foreign investment are both required for the telecoms market to show solid development in coming years. In preparation for this, DT itself is forging international alliances, and has been a key investor in cables including the DARE, PEACE and AWE systems.
