Airtel Africa’s footprint is characterized by low but increasing mobile connectivity, with a unique user penetration at 43%, highlighting the potential for growth across its footprint.
The company believes in enhancing connectivity and digitizing the countries in which it operates and has invested to expand its network footprint and number of 4G sites to enhance network capabilities and support its future business growth.
A combination of an under-penetrated telecom market, a young addressable population and rising smartphone affordability, along with low data penetration and an underbanked population, will drive the growth opportunities for the data and mobile money segments moving forward.
