Technology and Telecommunication 


Technology helps us connect. Its influence permeates every aspect of human civilization. There can be no life as we know without computers, hardware, software and all the encompassing technology. This sector has shown tremendous growth in the last few decades and experts still view it as an emerging field influencing the way businesses are run.
Due to the volatile nature of the sector, accessing capital and finding and retaining the right personnel are more challenging than ever. The ever increasing complexity of products, escalating manufacturing costs and the continuing trend of convergence are some of the factors that demand alternative ways in evaluating businesses competitiveness.

The telecom market in Tunisia  is a fast-growing, intensely competitive market, open to international investment and dominated by the private sector. The market is becoming increasingly saturated and mobile penetration rate is high, penetration statistics do not reflect the exact number of people with mobile phones. Due to the multi-SIM ownership, penetration rates are thought to reflect a certain number of registered, rather than active, users. In the meantime, rural areas that have relatively low penetration provide room for further improvement and promise good growth potential.

The overall income of the telecommunications market in Tunisia reached an increase of 9.5% in the first half of 2018. This very important growth highlights the competitive dynamics of the various services related to telecommunications encouraged by a discursive regulation. The largest net increase in sales was recorded in the fixed-data market, with significant growth of 26.3% in the first half of 2018 compared to the first half of 2017 and an increase of 70.1 million dinars in 2 years, thanks in particular to the simplification of the customer journey by adopting the single bill and the single point of contact in the offers of smart ADSL and wholesale resale ... It is useful to also specify that the revenues of the Mobile data market experienced a sharp increase thanks to the change in consumer behavior.
