GSMA: Les opérateurs cherchent à réduire les coûts de l'itinérance entre l'Afrique et le Moyen-Orient

La société GSMA a annoncé aujourd'hui que les hauts dirigeants des neuf grands groupes d'opérateurs mobiles, représentant plus d'un demi-milliard de connections mobiles dans 48 pays en Afrique et au Moyen-Orient, ont entrepris individuellement des initiatives visant à réduire le coût de l'itinérance pour les consommateurs dans les deux régions. Les neuf groupes d'opérateurs se sont engagés à une séries d'initiatives d'itinérance qui, outre la politique des prix, permettront d'améliorer la connectivité et la mobilité régionale en augmentant les empreintes d'itinérance afin de fournir davantage de choix à la clientèle, avec une insistance particulière mise sur l'amélioration d’accès pour les clients des services prépayés. Ces efforts combinés permettront aux consommateurs en Afrique et au Moyen-Orient d'utiliser leurs téléphones mobiles avec plus de confiance et de prévisibilité durant le voyage.

«La mobilité internationale et régionale est un facteur essentiel dans l'augmentation des échanges et de la coopération économique transfrontalière, qui s'avère la priorité du gouvernement à travers l'Afrique et le Moyen-Orient", a déclaré Anne Bouverot, directrice générale de GSMA. "Les initiatives de ces neuf opérateurs sont destinées pour augmenter la connectivité et rendre les téléphones mobiles plus abordables pour les abonnés dans ces régions, en favorisant une plus grande adoption et utilisation des services mobiles et en permettant des avantages socio-économiques importants".

Dans le cadre de leur travail, les opérateurs envisageront une série de facteurs qui influent les tarifs d'itinérance, dans le but d'améliorer l'efficacité technique et la réduction des coûts. Les hauts dirigeants des neuf groupes d'opérateurs mobiles supportant ces initiatives sont les suivants:

  • Christian de Faria, chef exécutif chez Bharti Airtel en Afrique
  • Ahmad Julfar, chef exécutif du groupe Etisalat
  • Arthur Bastings, vice-président exécutif chez Millicom en Afrique
  • Sifiso Dabengwa, PDG et président du groupe MTN
  • Dr Nasser Marafih, PDG du groupe Ooredoo
  • Marc Rennard, vice-président exécutif chez Orange en Afrique, au Moyen-Orient et en Asie
  • Abdulaziz A. Alsugair, président et directeur général, du groupe STC
  • Serpil Timuray, chef exécutif, du groupe Vodafone dans la région d'Afrique, du Moyen et d'Asie-Pacifique
  • Scott Gegenheimer, chef exécutif, du groupe Zain

Les recherches de la société GSMA ont montré les marchés émergents, dont de nombreux pays en Afrique et au Moyen-Orient, qui sont aujourd'hui les principaux moteurs de la communication mobile et de la croissance des abonnés. Le rythme accéléré de l'adoption mobile a délivré d'énormes avantages économiques pour les régions, avec la contribution directe de l'industrie mobile d'un montant de 60 milliards de dollars à l'économie de l'Afrique sub-saharienne, ou de six pour cent du PIB et de 132 milliards de dollars pour les économies des États arabes, soit environ 5,5 pour cent du PIB total.

Bouverot a souligné, "Le secteur mobile se concentre en la connexion des milliards de personnes non connectées à travers le monde, en ayant accès aux communications essentielles, informations et services et en offrant de nouvelles opportunités économiques. La dynamique du marché délivre des tarifs d'itinérance plus abordables et une meilleure valeur pour les consommateurs. Dans les deux régions, ceci sera notamment poussé par le mouvement de la téléphonie à l'usage des données à des prix plus flexibles".

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete.
