Sudan


Sudan has a population of 37 million people and geographically covers 1.8 million square Kilometres. As of 2013, approximately 67% of the population and 25% of the land area are covered by at least one of the 4 (Zain, MTN, Sudani and Canar) 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 over 1.25 million sq. Km of land area and nearly 15 million citizens of Sudan outside the reach of essential telecommunications services. According to studies by The World Bank, 35% 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 $35 million to build 300 mobile network base stations in Sudan (not South Sudan). Each of these will be connected to one of the licensed operators. The AMN network will serve a total population of 1.9 million people (5% of the population), with an average of 6,300 people served by each base station and generating an estimated 900,000 new mobile subscribers worth circa $32 million per year in gross airtime revenues.
