Djibouti

Basics[]

In Djibouti there is only one operator active:

  • Djibouti Telecom (Evatis)

Djibouti is one of the last countries in the world allowing its national telco Djibouti Telecom (DT) a monopoly on all telecom services, including fixed lines, mobile, internet and broadband. The lack of competition has meant that prices are not so cheap for African standards.

Their signal covers most parts of country and where 3G is available, reasonable speeds of up to 7 Mbps can be expected.

Djibouti Telecom (Evatis)[]
