RnRMarketResearch.com has now added “Data Centre Africa 2015” and “Handsets and Service Pricing Tool” report to its research database.rr_Mkt_researchlogoRnRMarketResearch.com is an online database of syndicated market research reports covering over 5000+ micro markets.

The report has information from some 65 Data Centre providers across the 9 African countries which have multiple Data Centre providers. They include Algeria, Egypt, Ghana, Kenya, Morocco, Nigeria, South Africa, Tunisia & Uganda.

An announcement regarding the report says some 137 separate Data Centre and Collocation facilities have been identified in the 9 African countries (up from 102 facilities identified in the 2012 report).

The Data Centre Africa – 2015, Data Centre Pricing from 2015 to 2020 report is an updated version of the TCL Data Centre Africa – 2012 report, which was published in February 2013.

The Data Centre Africa – 2015 report contains primary research – including interviews, telephone contacts together with rack space price quotes received directly from the Data Centre providers in Africa. It also has information from other interested parties including information obtained from industry regulators in the countries surveyed.

To derive the space forecast in the report researcher has performed a “bottom up” survey of all the identifiable Data Centres in each of the 9 African countries in the report, with overall raised floor space and utilisation levels as of the beginning of 2015, which is then used as the basis of a 5 year forecast from the beginning of 2015 to the beginning of 2020.

The “market structure” section of each country profile, refers to details of the growth of the ICT sector in each country – and provides teledensity statistics. Some queries the tool addresses are: What device models are offered to postpaid customers? What are the handset and service fees associated to these device models? What is the minimum total cost of acquiring a handset? How do contract terms vary between countries? What is the data bundle size for entry-level service plans? In which markets is handset X currently available? (e.g. X=iPhone 6 Plus). How does the total minimum cost of maintaining handset X differ between markets? What are the OS shares in different operators’ portfolios? What are the manufacturers’ shares in different operators’ portfolios? Which operators split device fees from service fees? What is the penetration of 4G handsets in different operators’ portfolios? and more. The report is accessible HERE
