STRENGTHS
Algeria ranks 45th in GCI 2017, retaining its position from 2016.

The major improvement comes from the score in mobile broadband, increasing from 4 to 7 within one year. As an starter in its early stage, Algeria only scores 2 in ICT investment, falling behind from the world average scored at 4.8. The limited penetration of broadband and people’s access to the Internet is hindering the further development.

4G wireless is about to be launched by Djezzy in Algeria. This could be a major step towards more advanced and faster Internet connection and would help the country to catch up. The ICT national strategy also aims to increase services supply and facilitate telecommunication services access to the greatest number of users, particularly in rural area, and at competitive prices.
OPPORTUNITIES
The Algeria's economic base is enriched with young entrepreneurs who engage in the creation of the start-up. However, in the absence of the 3G or the 4G, the digital economy remains inert. The government needs to improve the quality of the supplied internet services and extend services range; also guarantee the rural area community and other disadvantaged groups access to telecommunication and information network services.

Algeria could leverage the development of ICT to increase the performance and business competitiveness of companies and to benefit from the opportunities offered by a wider and highly dynamic market. To achieve that, they need to support the ownership of ICTs by small and medium-sized enterprises; develop or import applications for business usage; expand the provision of services online by enterprises. Action plan to enhance the national scientific activities in the information and communication technology can help the nation to build up its technical capacity.
