Angola


Angola has a population of 20.4 million people and geographically covers 1.25 million square Kilometres. 41% of the population live in rural areas. As of 2013, approximately 40% of the population and 20% of the land area are covered by at least one of the 2 (Unitel and Movicel) licensed mobile network operators, and by 2015 this is projected to increase to 60% population and 30% land area coverage. This means that by 2015 there will still be nearly 900,000 sq. Km of land area and more than 8 million citizens of Angola outside the reach of essential telecommunications services. According to studies by The World Bank, 3% of the population can’t be served economically by mobile network service, but this figure is reduced significantly due to AMN’s innovative low-cost solution which allows very small populations to be viable at the same times as maximizing the coverage area of a single cell and the population served.

AMN is investing $53 million to build 450 mobile network base stations in Angola. Each of these will be connected to one of the licensed operators. The AMN network will serve a total population of 3 million people (15% of the population), with an average of 7,000 people served by each base station and generating an estimated 1.5 million new mobile subscribers worth circa $53 million per year in gross airtime revenues.
