Guinea-Bissau Country Intelligence Report


Total telecom service revenue in Guinea-Bissau will reach US$67 million in 2019, an increase of 2.3% from 2018, which is mainly due to growth in mobile data services, driven by increasing smartphone adoption arising from 3G and 4G improvements by operators. Total revenue will increase further and grow to US$88.4 million by 2024 led by the mobile data segment. Mobile voice revenue will represent 63.8% of total telecom service revenue in 2019 but will decline over 2019-2024 to reach US$65.3 million by 2024 due to falling mobile voice ARPU as a result of competition-induced voice tariff cuts.
