Total telecom service revenue in Guinea will reach $461 million in 2018, an increase of 3% from 2017, which is due to growth in mobile data services, driven by increasing smartphone adoption. Total revenue will, however, decline to $455 million by 2023, due to a weakening local currency. Fixed voice and fixed broadband revenue will decline during 2018-2023, due to substitution from fixed services to mobile and OTT-based communications, as well as because of the weakening currency.
