MTN Cameroon, the country’s largest wireless operator, has announced that it has been awarded a licence to offer internet access services by the Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications. At the same time the company confirmed its acquisition of local ISP GlobalNet is ongoing; a unified company will operate under the banner MTN Network Solutions (MTN NS). The new subsidiary, which will be 100% owned by MTN Cameroon, hopes to rollout services to ten provincial capitals before the end of 2006, a figure which it expects to have doubled by the end of the first quarter of 2007.
