UEMOA: Togo is no longer the country with the cheapest ISP offers (ARCEP)

(Togo First) - Togo is no more the country with the cheapest internet offers in the WAEMU. According to the ARCEP, the country’s telecom regulator, it was dethroned by Côte d’Ivoire and Burkina Faso. 

In a press release issued on November 15, 2022, the ARCEP stated that Canalbox (Groupe Vivendi Africa, GVA) and Togocom (operating in Togo) were outpaced by Moov Africa’s subsidiaries in Côte d’Ivoire and Burkina Faso.

In addition to fixed internet access, Moov Africa’s subsidiaries have the cheapest offers in all ranges thanks to the many advantages. "These advantages are characterized by unlimited fixed-line intra-network calls, fixed-line inter-network voice packages, mobile voice packages, or mobile data packages, offered free of charge to subscribers," ARCEP said.

According to the ARCEP, Moov Africa Ivory Coast and Moov Africa Burkina Faso charge respectively CFA15,000 and CFA30,000 for their 50 Mbps and 200 Mbps offers – the same as Canalbox and Togocom. However, in addition to these offers, there are other advantages such as a mobile package of 60 minutes in Burkina and unlimited fixed-line calls on-net, 60 minutes of fixed-line calls to any network, 150 minutes of mobile calls, and 3 GB of mobile data.

Commenting on the new ranking, Yaovi Galley, head of ARCEP, “strongly encourages Internet service providers in Togo to be more generous and innovative with their offers, emulating the best rates in the sub-region and the rest of the world.”
