Democratic Republic of Congo Telecoms Market Overview & Statistics Report

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/89c53c/democratic_republi) has announced the addition of the "Democratic Republic of Congo - Telecoms Market Overview & Statistics" report to their offering.

DRC is a mineral-rich country that is recovering from civil strife and many years of pillage by its former leaders which has accounted for the low level of development of its telecommunications and other infrastructure. While the traditional fixed-line network has deteriorated to almost non-existence, mobile telephony has experienced excellent growth. Wireless technologies serve as a replacement of the obsolete fixed network infrastructure and public payphones. National teledensity remains extremely low, creating enormous potential for the provision of basic services. There is also strong demand for Internet service which has been hampered by the underdeveloped telecoms infrastructure.
