The Business Case for 5G Investments in Africa

By: Oluwole BabatopeSenior Research Analyst, Telecoms & Networking, Africa


This IDC Market Perspective looks at the business case for 5G investments in Africa. It focuses on current 5G deployments across the continent and highlights the use cases expected to drive investments in 5G technology. The document concludes with recommendations for mobile network and internet service providers.

"The mass market adoption of 5G is not likely until 5G-enabled mobile devices become more affordable. Mobile operators will consequently limit their network rollouts to supporting enterprise use cases. Due to current financial pressures, telcos will delay extensive 5G investments until they can generate substantial ROI from a mass of consumers." — Oluwole Babatope, Senior Research Analyst, IDC West Africa
