Mozambique Communication


Postal and telecommunications services are government-operated. In the larger cities, telephones are automatic. There were 82,400 mainline telephones and 5.971 million cellular phones in use in 2009.

Radio Moçambique, the official radio service, broadcasts in Portuguese, English, Afrikaans, and local languages. TV Mozambique is the government-owned television service. As of 2001, there were 12 AM and 17 FM radio stations (about 14 were privately owned) and one national television station. In 2000, there were 44 radios and five television sets for every 1,000 people.

In terms of access to the internet, Mozambique has a comparatively low rate of penetration with only 2.8% of the population having access to the internet according to the Internet World Stats 2010 data. TDM, Mozambique's national fixed-line operator, offers ADSL internet services for home and business customers. The two mobile operators, mCel and Vodacom, also offer internet access using 3G.

Telephone system :
general assessment: a fair telecommunications system that is shackled with a heavy state presence, lack of competition, and high operating costs and charges
domestic: stagnation in the fixed-line network contrasts with rapid growth in the mobile-cellular network; mobile-cellular coverage now includes all the main cities and key roads, including those from Maputo to the South African and Swaziland borders, the national highway through Gaza and Inhambane provinces, the Beira corridor, and from Nampula to Nacala; extremely low fixed-line teledensity; despite significant growth in mobile-cellular services, teledensity remains low at about 25 per 100 persons
international: country code - 258; satellite earth stations - 5 Intelsat (2 Atlantic Ocean and 3 Indian Ocean); landing point for the SEACOM fibre-optic cable

Broadcast media :
1 state-run TV station supplemented by private TV station; Portuguese state TV's African service, RTP Africa, and Brazilian-owned TV Miramar are available; state-run radio provides nearly 100% territorial coverage and broadcasts in multiple languages; a number of privately-owned and community-operated stations also broadcast; transmissions of multiple international broadcasters are available (2007)
