The countries in the African region are undertaking significant reforms to develop their telecommunication infrastructure, increase their low penetration rates and provide better quality service to the public. Most countries have passed or are pursuing legislation to restructure their telecommunication sector to allow for new technologies and services, to permit competition in basic telecommunication, introduce private investment, and to establish a credible regulatory agency to oversee the sector.
