Togo has the cheapest and fastest FTTH offer in the WAEMU (ARCEP)

(Togo First) - Togo is the country with the cheapest and fastest fiber optic internet offers within the West African Economic and Monetary Union (WAEMU). ARCEP, Togo’s telecom regulator, disclosed the information on May 23, 2022. 

The regulator explained that Togo owes its performance to a price overhaul recently carried out by Canalbox (Vivendi Africa Group, GVA). 

GVA replaced its 10 Mbps monthly offer with a 50 Mbps offer, for the same price: CFA15,000. "This is the most affordable FTTH offer on the African continent and enables more Togolese to enjoy high quality and unlimited broadband Internet access at home. This offer fosters wide democratization of Internet access in Togo, hence reducing the digital divide in line with the National Development Plan," the Internet Service Provider (ISP) said.

Similarly, the ISP upped its former 50 Mbps offer to 200 Mbps while keeping its price at CFA30,000 per month.

The tariff changes were announced after ARCEP complained about the prices of electronic communications being too high in Togo. Now, it urges other operators to take a leaf out of GVA’s book, to contribute to the development of Togo’s digital economy.
