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)Edit


The company has both a CDMA and a GSM network. The CDMA Network is used to provide the users with a "fixed" line and their phone numbers start with a 2. The GSM network used to be marketed under the name Evatis and all mobile numbers start with 77.

The network operates on 900 MHz, for 2G and also for 3G, that has been available since 2012. 4G/LTE is being tested since March 2016, not launched yet, but constantly announced.
