The telecommunication industry has experienced steady growth in the past decade, the communication sector currently contributes 3.8% of the overall country’s GDP, with telecommunication being a major driver. Even though investment (be it direct foreign or local), and the use of Telecommunication services is still at what some would refer to as “early stage” the industry is growing gradually and accommodating new players, development of new products and service, parallel innovation, OTT diversification etc.
