ARTP, Sonatel launch local loop unbundling

11 Jul 2018

The Regulation Authority for Telecoms and Post (ARTP) has announced that local loop unbundling (LLU) has been launched in Senegal, writes Kewoulo. The incumbent Senegalese ISP Sonatel has had its fixed copper network opened up to other telcos in a move that the regulator hopes will increase competition in the sector and encourage retail rates to drop, with the aim of enabling more customers to access fixed broadband services. ARTP has already taken steps to increase competition in the fixed broadband sector by licensing three new ISPs in March this year, namely Waaw, Africa Access and Arc Informatique.
