Togo: Arcep launches an app to assess internet speed and quality

(Togo First) - Togo's telecom regulator, ARCEP, has launched an app called My Perf to measure the quality of internet connections across the country. The app is available on Google's Play Store and aims to help users assess their internet speed and obtain clear data on their network's performance. 

My Perf provides data on download speed, transfer speed, and latency. Additionally, it features an interactive map that allows users to check internet performance in a city or region.

A few weeks ago, ARCEP reported an improvement in mobile connectivity costs in Togo. In a report released at the end of April, the watchdog stated that overall costs for Moov Africa and Togocel decreased by 71% and 63%, respectively, between Q1 2021 and April 2023. The report also noted that entry-level tariffs in Togo have converged towards the regional average, but average entry-level tariffs remain high, over six times the tariffs recorded at the top end of the market. This represents the widest gap among the eight countries of the WAEMU region. The findings underscore the evolution of connectivity tariffs in Togo, amid competition between the two providers and pressure from the regulator.
