Research and Markets: Telecommunications Markets of Kenya, Nigeria, and South Africa Report – Analysis, Technologies & Forecasts

This study analyses the regulatory environment concerning telecommunications in selected countries within the African continent. The aim of the research is to assess the impact of regulations on the development of the telecommunications market in Kenya, Nigeria, and South Africa.
