ARTEL's "Bareme de Redevances" (Scale of Royalties): WLANs require an authorization when they are for private use, a license when for public use. Cost for WLAN authorization varies with the data-speed according to a formula: speeds above 2MB/sec are priced at 39,867,187.50 Gabonese francs (about US$65,000). Which makes us think Wifi might not be considered a WLAN in Gabon...?
License application for networks, "radioelectric" telecom services and local telephone services.
"For the 2.4 and 5GHz bands there are operators/persons who use the bands without a license. For the moment, we have just setup a frequency control center which is starting to control and detect the 'breachers'. But I can assure you that there are many people using these bands without an authorization..." ---quoted in the "Other information (from survey, e-mails, or personal contacts)" section of Wireless Networks for the Developing World: The Regulation and Use of Licence-Exempt Radio Bands in Africa by Isabel Neto (May 2004), page 201.
