DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Botswana – Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband – Statistics and Analyses” report has been added to’s offering.

Botswana using improved fibre connectivity to develop e-commerce

Although Botswana has a particularly high mobile penetration rate, the fixed-line sector remains underdeveloped. This is characteristic of many markets in the region, itself a legacy of years of underinvestment.

However, the government and the wholesale network provider BoFiNet have made considerable progress in recent years to expand the reach of the national fibre network. This is being used to develop e-health and e-government services, and also to foster e-commerce.

The government in October 2021 launched a revised e-commerce strategy in partnership with the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD). This strategy aims to address various barriers which could potentially restrict growth of e-commerce, and is premised on the wider availability of quality broadband.

It is also supported by the wider efforts being made as part of Botswana’s Vision 2036 program, which aims to propel economic development through ICT.
