This Africa and Middle East Research Overview provides two pieces of content to showcase Pyramid Research’s membership and consulting services in the region. The e-Brochure offers a summary of market trends and our research overview.

According to Pyramid, investment opportunities will remain attractive as operators realize that growth depends on data services.
In Africa, there is great potential behind mobile broadband and smartphones; exponential growth in affordable smartphones is driving new ways of data consumption and thus new revenue streams. The transition to 3G is more urgent, while commercial LTE deployments are appearing in Sub-Saharan markets such as Nigeria, Angola, Tanzania and Uganda.
In the Middle East, FTTH and LTE are quickly becoming the focus of competition. The UAE and Qatar both have nationwide FTTH projects, and there are ambitious rollouts in Turkey and Saudi Arabia. Many operators in the Gulf already have LTE networks, but with 4G handsets becoming more available, they are beginning to tap into the potential of small-screen mobile Internet access more effectively.
Pyramid Research offers practical solutions to the complex demands our clients face in the global communications industry. Its analysis is uniquely positioned at the intersection of emerging markets, emerging technologies and emerging business models, powered by the bottom-up methodology of our market forecasts for more than 100 countries — a distinction that has remained unmatched for more than 25 years.
