Executive summary
Mauritius government unveils Smart Mauritius strategyThe island nation of Mauritius benefits from an advanced and innovative telecom sector. It was the first market in the greater Africa region to launch cellular systems (in 1989), the first to provide commercial 3G mobile service (2004), the first in the world to develop a nationwide WiMAX wireless broadband network (2005), and one of the first to launch IPTV services (2006). 4G services based on LTE have also been launched, providing data at up to 100Mb/s.

With strong tourism and financial services sectors, Mauritiuss economy is expected to continue growing at more than 4percent per year.
The incumbent telco, Mauritius Telecom has been partially privatised and now benefits from the scale and technical prowess of France Telecom/Orange, which holds a 40percent interest in the operator. All sectors of the market are open to competition. Served by a modern, digital fixed-line network, fibre optic submarine cables for international connectivity, three mobile networks, a number of broadband and other service providers, Mauritius is successfully pursuing a policy to make telecommunications the fifth pillar of its economy and to become a regional telecom hub with Singapore as a role model. The government has been active in promoting its national broadband policy, and also been instrumental in securing infrastructure upgrades, including an upgrade for satellite connectivity to Rodrigues, which became operational in mid-2013.

The mobile market, with penetration at 122percent, is migrating from voice to data services. There are three GSM networks - Orange (Mauritius Telecom in partnership with France Telecom/Orange), Emtel (operated by Millicom International) and Mahanagar, a subsidiary of Indias MTNL which is also the islands second fixed-line operator using CDMA2000 technology.

The highest growth rates are currently seen in the mobile broadband sector, where HSPA and EV-DO based 3G services are competing with fixed-line DSL and other wireless broadband offerings, including WiMAX. FttC and FttP rollouts are in progress and have already brought 100Mb/s connections to businesses, with nearly nationwide coverage planned for 2015. The landing of a second international submarine fibre optic cable has brought prices down further in a broadband market that was already one of Africas most developed.
