Togo plans to provide broadband internet to 90% of its population by 2022

(Togo First) - In Togo, the government plans to achieve maximum internet coverage as quickly as possible. In that regard, it “will extend and improve the digital coverage of the territory,” revealed Cina Lawson, Togolese Minister of Posts, Digital Economy and Technological Innovation, in a recent release.

Our target is that by 2022, 90% of the population will have access to broadband internet,” she added.

In preparation for the achievement of this goal, the responsible ministry sought the best points of passage that are most consistent with the existing infrastructure (railway network, the network of ISPs and telecom operators in the country, E-Gov) and with users’ needs. 

For the government, the challenge of developing very high-speed communications networks has become central. Indeed, "many areas, including trade, health, administration, and culture highly depend on digital technology,” the ministerial department informs.

Over the last three years, the Internet penetration rate has tripled from 7% in 2016 to 21% in 2019 to reach 1.71 million users, according to available data.
