Guiné Tel contracts Tecore for mobile expansion

16 Feb 2005

Guiné Telecom (Guiné Tel), Guinea Bissau’s sole fixed line and mobile telecoms operator, has contracted Tecore Wireless Systems to expand its mobile network. Under the terms of the deal Tecore will expand the existing AirCore Mobile Switching Centre (MSC) capabilities, as well as increasing the network’s capacity and coverage area. Guiné Tel – with the help of Tecore – only launched its GSM network in 2004, despite having held a licence for several years.
