Morocco maintains its ranking at 61st in GCI 2019.
Morocco has improved its score for 4G investment over the last year, despite its overall ranking below the global average. Along with South Africa, Morocco has some of the best 4G coverage in Africa, with 60% of the country area covered by LTE mobile technology. Mobile broadband subscription saw a 2-point improvement, as did smartphone penetration, despite broadband becoming less affordable this year. Internet usage also expanded over last year.
Morocco should continue to grow its digital infrastructure, increase online content, expand citizens’ access to broadband with an emphasis on developing digital skills, and support local service providers in developing the local IT market and building potential.
