  • 5G is the new leading cellular technology until 6G comes in 2030
  • 2G/2.5G is far from dead and still holds significant share of the market and share will remain double digit still in 2027. Africa region still needs low-cost handsets where 2G/2.5G featurephones fit very well.
  • 4G remains the main technology in Africa region throughout our forecast period as their transition to 5G is slow.
