Internet

The internet and broadband sectors were underdeveloped for a long time throughout Côte d'Ivoire.  However, this has been addressed in recent years with the installation of a second connection cable in Abidjan in November 2011.  Access to these networks are providing significant reductions in retail pricing for wireless broadband services.  As recently as 2017, there has also been the introduction of Fiber cable options in some parts of Abidjan providing internet speeds up to 100Mbps.

 

Currently, there are several internet service providers available in Abidjan and throughout Côte d'Ivoire:

Home internet set up can be obtained through ADSL with a phone line connection or through any of the broadband providers listed below.   As the quality of your network usually depends on your location, it is best if you can ask your neighbors their experiences prior to choosing your provider.

 

Mobile operators (MTN-CI, MOOV-CI and ORANGE-CI) offer access to the internet either via mobile phone handsets or via a portable hotspot.  These are idea for those who have a lower consumption rate and prefer a "pay-as-you-go" plan rather than a monthly payment plan.

 

Requirements for obtaining a residential internet connection are:

  • A form of identification such as a passport or a national identity card
  • An electricity or water bill proving residency
  • A map showing the location of your residence 

Prices depend on the selected speed and range between 12,500 and 45,000 CFA per month.

 

There are a wide range of internet options available so we have listed some of the companies below so you can find what will best suit your needs!
