Customised Research

  • Language

We undertake customised GIS mapping projects for a range of clients including telecom operators, consultancies, financial institutions, industry associations, and government agencies. These projects include the production of detailed maps of telecom networks to the development of metrics quantifying market size.

Please call to discuss your requirements.

Here are some examples of recent projects undertaken:

Africa’s International Bandwidth Passes 2 Tbps

2014/5 Africa Telecom Transmission Map Published

Africa’s total inventory of terrestrial transmission networks has more than doubled in the last five years. The sixth edition of the Africa Telecom Transmission Map shows that by June 2014, the total inventory of terrestrial transmission networks had increased to 958,901 route kilometres, compared to 465,659-km in 2009.

Over the same period, Africa’s international Internet bandwidth increased twenty-fold, and has passed the 2 Tbps mark. By December 2013, Africa’s total international Internet bandwidth reached 2.034 Tbps, a 38% increase compared to 2012. This total of 2.034 Tbps was split between Sub-Saharan Africa, which increased by 39% to reach 1.138 Tbps, and North Africa which increased by 36% to reach 896 Gbps. Read More →

Africa’s International Bandwidth Jumps To 1.479 Tbps

2013/4 Africa Telecom Transmission Map Published

Africa’s international Internet bandwidth sailed past the 1 Tbps mark during 2012, and jumped by 84% to reach 1.479 Tbps by December 2012. The increase seen during 2012 was driven principally by growth across Sub-Saharan Africa: the total of 1.479 Tbps was split between Sub Saharan Africa, which increased by 127% to reach 821 Gbps by December 2012, and North Africa which increased by 50% to reach 658 Gbps.

A key factor underpinning this bandwidth growth has been the expansion of terrestrial fibre networks inland. In the last year alone, an additional 25 million people across Sub-Saharan Africa were brought within reach of a fibre optic node. Read More →

Africa’s Fibre Reach Increases By 32 Million, To 40% Of Population

Africa Transmission Map Updates, Q2 2012

In the twelve months since July 2011, an additional 36,165-km of terrestrial fibre optic network has entered service across Africa, according to the latest additions to the Africa Telecom Transmission Map. By July 2012, Africa’s total inventory of terrestrial transmission networks reached 732,662-km, compared with 660,230-kms in June 2011, 585,468-kms in June 2010 and 465,659 in June 2009.

This roll out of terrestrial networks in the last year has brought an additional 31.903 million people across Sub-Saharan Africa within reach of an operational fibre node Read More →

Africa's International Bandwidth Approaches 1 Tbps Mark

Africa Transmission Map Updates, Q1 2012

Africa’s international Internet bandwidth will reach the 1 Tbps mark during 2012. By December 2011, Africa’s total international Internet bandwidth reached 801 Gbps, a 60% increase compared to 2010. This was split between North Africa which increased by 45% to reach 433 Gbps, and Sub-Saharan Africa which increased by 82% to reach 368 Gbps.

Africa’s inventory of terrestrial transmission network reached 702,294.9 route kilometres in the first quarter of 2012. A total of 1,127 changes were made to terrestrial networks in the Africa Transmission Map during the first quarter of 2012, with fibre backbones extended for Read More →

Africa's Fibre Roll-Out: 138 Route-Kms of New Fibre Network Enters Service Per Day

2011 Africa Telecom Transmission Map Published.

Africa’s total inventory of terrestrial transmission networks increased by 15% over the last year to reach 676,739 route-kms by the end of September 2011, according to the third edition of the Africa Telecom Transmission Map.

In the last twelve months, on average 138 route-kms of new fibre network entered service per day Read More →

Terrestrial Network Rollout Increases Africa's Fibre Reach By 54 Million

Africa Transmission Map Updates Q2, 2011.

In the twelve months since July 2010, an additional 45,498-km of terrestrial fibre optic network has entered service across Africa, according to the latest additions to the Africa Telecom Transmission Map.

This roll out of terrestrial networks has brought an additional 53.885 million people across Sub-Saharan Africa within reach of an operational fibre node, more than the population of South Africa Read More →

Africa's International Bandwidth Reaches 500 Gbps Mark

Africa Transmission Map Updates Q1, 2011.

Africa’s total international Internet bandwidth reached 520 Gbps in December 2010, a 78% increase compared to 2009. This was split between North Africa, which increased by 56% to reach 312 Gbps, and Sub-Saharan Africa which increased by 125% to reach 208 Gbps.

In the first quarter of 2011, a total of 45,338.7-kms of network was added or edited in the Africa Telecom Transmission Map, bringing the total inventory of terrestrial transmission network to 645,938.2-km. By comparison, in July 2010 Read More →
