(Ecofin Agency) - Morocco’s telecommunications regulator (ANRT) is currently elaborating actions that will develop its national telecommunication sector in the coming four years in its 2019-2022 general guidance paper.
The new guidance paper should take into account technology evolution, the coming 5G network, the evolving big data, blockchain, virtual reality, Internet of Things, that are shaking the bases and progressively and strongly imposing new ways to see the world.
Before the coming four years, ANRT will first have to make an exhaustive assessment of opportunities and challenges experienced in the sector in the past years.
2015-2018 has been marked by regulatory battles notably, the unbundling issues which have not yet been definitively settled. The incumbent operator is by the way being prosecuted for "unfair competition” initiated by Inwi.
