Telecommunications Policies for Sub-Saharan Africa
B. Laidlaw and
World Bank - Discussion Papers from World Bank
The need for telecommunications sector reforms is now widely recognized in Sub-Saharan Africa. A growing number of countries are at some stage of designing or implementing reforms that seek to attract private investment and open the markets to some degree of competition. This report assesses the performance of the sector, identifies strategies of sector reform that are applicable in the region's circumstances, reviews reform underway as of 1995 in five countries, offers some suggestions on appropriate regulatory regimes, and discusses the prospects for attracting private sector financing.
