Rwandan telecom market has continued to develop strongly, buttressed by the sustained GDP growth that has been able to see country develop among the fastest expanding economies globally. Supported by the significant foreign aid, the growth has been aided by the prudent fiscal and the monetary policies that have created the business-friendly environment conducive to the investment. Nevertheless, poverty remains to be widespread. There is very minimal economic diversity with most of population engaged in agriculture as well as the good proportion of remaining involved in the mineral and the agro-processing sectors. Financial services sector is still underdeveloped; with the banks focused on the governmental borrowing there is very minimal attention paid to support the small businesses, and most of the population has minimal or even no access to the conventional banking services. In return, this has made Rwanda be among the most successful markets on the continent for mobile banking as well as the payment services.

This country was a bit slow to liberalize, permitting MTN to operate as a monopoly until the year 2006 when fixed line incumbent, Rwandatel (since procured by Liquid Telecom) turned into the second mobile operator. There has been a compelling challenge among three current operators, where each of them gives wide geographic inclusion. The dispatch of services from Tigo in the year 2009 started reestablished the subscriber growth. However, rivalry has disintegrated mobile services income and ARPU from that point forward. In any case, the obtaining of Tigo via Airtel, an arrangement to be shut over a two-year time frame, will see the Tigo brand expelled and a critical solidification in the market.

Rwanda's internet, as well as the broadband area, has experienced constrained fixed-line infrastructure and high costs. The operators are taking off national fiber-optic spine systems which likewise enable them to interface with the global submarine fiber-optic links on African east coast. The cables have given the whole locale fiber-based universal data transmission out of the blue and finished its reliance on the satellites. The Suring 2018 Liquid Telecom has kept on extending its FttP benefits crosswise over Kigali and various towns.

Enthusiasm from financial specialists in the nation's ICT segment stays solid. An arrangement with Korea Telecom has built up wholesale LTE administrator, Korea Telecom Rwanda Networks, which gives the retail services to variously fixed line administrators just as to the mobile network operators. The quantity of the subscribers on LTE foundation expanded 200% in the year 2016, year-on-year.

This report contains a review, and the analysis of Rwanda's telecommunications advertise, profiles of the major players in all market parts, important insights and investigation, and versatile subscriber gauges to the year 2023.
