Poor telecom infrastructure in many countries especially in Africa hurdles the development of smart city projects.

Most African countries such as Rwanda and South Africa are more focused on providing better quality of life through smart city initiates such as transportation, electricity and water projects while the countries in the Middle Eastern region such as Israel and the United Arab Emirates are using smart city solutions to improve the efficiency of city services and enhance security measures.

Government performs the key function in leading the smart city projects as well as contributing funds for the initiatives in Africa and the Middle East. Telcos are primarily engaged in providing connectivity through investments in 4G and fibre-optic networks.
