DUBLIN, January 19, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Burkina Faso - Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband - Statistics and Analyses" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
Burkina Faso postpones MNP indefinitely
The net effect of the pandemic has been significant in Burkina Faso. The number of mobile subscribers increased 4.9% in 2020, year-on-year, and stronger growth has been reported into 2021, pushing the penetration rate above 127% by the end of the year.
In most markets, Mobile Number Portability has been a facility keenly adopted by regulators in a bid to encourage operators to improve the quality of services offered. It also encourages price competition, and so can contribute to lower end-user costs.
Legislation dating to November 2008 provided for the implementation of MNP. A decree of February 2011 set in train procedures to set it up, though the process has since been slow. The regulator conducted a study in June 2014, which established that the mobile market would benefit from MNP.
The regulator more recently launched a study to determine the technical and legal details involved in implementing MNP. Proceedings were overseen by representatives from the regulator and the telcos. These were subsequently mired in disputes, with the telcos offering amendments which the regulator mostly dismissed.
The regulator then concluded that although the market was characterised by subscribers taking out a number of SIM cards, and from different operators (precisely the conditions which MNP was designed to address), the facility would be of only marginal benefit to them. Implementing it has been postponed indefinitely.
However, many neighbouring countries have implement MNP in recent years, with considerable benefit to subscribers
