Western Sahara is located in North Africa along
the Atlantic coast. Currently a disputed territory, Western Sahara is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean,
Morocco, Mauritania, and Algeria. The region was previously under Spanish control as Spanish Sahara until 1976.
The northern portion of Western Sahara was annexed by Morocco soon after.
In 1979, Morocco claimed the remainder of the region after Mauritania withdrew.
However, the Polisario Front disputed Morocco's control, entering into a guerrilla war that ended with a cease-fire
in 1991. The Polisario Front (Popular Front for the Liberation of Saguia el-Hamra and Río de Oro) remains
focused on ending Morocco's presence in Western Sahara. It is also outlawed in parts of the territory controlled
The United Nations stepped in with peacekeepers and a proposed referendum - a choice between independence or integration
- that never materialized. Today, a sand berm built during the 1980s spans the entire length of the territory.
According to CIA World Factbook, as of July 2013, Western Sahara had a population of 570,866. The economy of Western
Sahara is administered by the Moroccan government which provides employment, funding, and infrastructure development
in the territory. The economy of Western Sahara is based on phosphate mining, fishing and nomadism. Morocco and
the Polisario often quarrel over the region's natural resources - and even the exploration of potential resources
such as oil.
Telecommunications in Western Sahara
According to CIA World Factbook, the
telecommunications system in Western Sahara is "sparse and limited." It is tied into Morocco's telecommunications
system by microwave radio relay, tropospheric scatter, and satellite via two satellite earth stations.
An article on OAfrica.com, notes that Maroc Telecom secured over $1 billion USD to fund the development of a large
telecommunications plan including a fiberoptic line running through the territory.
Because Western Sahara is a disputed territory, statistics about its telephone, mobile phone, and Internet usage
rates are unknown. Presumably, the portion of Western Sahara controlled by Morocco would be served by operators
licensed by Morocco.
