Ethiopia has the distinction of being one of Africa's few, remaining, major markets to liberalise its telecoms market. For instance, Ethio Telecom is the state-owned monopoly and the country's only mobile operator for a country with a population of 105 million. On 13th June 2019, Ethiopia's Federal parliament passed the Communication Regulatory Proclamation law. The law lays the legislative foundations for competition through the creation of an independent telecoms regulatory authority that will offer licenses to private and foreign companies.
