This IDC Market Perspective reviews the current ICT regulatory landscape across Sub-Saharan Africa and examines ongoing developments in this space — particularly those that address digital regulations and emerging technologies (including future spectrum allocations and technologies like cloud computing, IoT, and cybersecurity). This report also highlights issues that operators should be aware of and outlines some engagements that they can consider.

"Across Africa, ICT regulations are being reexamined to address new technological and economic realities. For example, inflexible policies are being adjusted to allow for the natural evolution of ICT ecosystems. Cross-sector collaborations are also being encouraged as technological disruptions are bringing external players — such regulators and government industries — into the ICT domain." — Senior Research Manager Keoikantse Marungwana, Telecom, IDC Sub-Saharan Africa
