Mauritius Telecom sees the future as Orange

18 Apr 2008

Mauritius Telecom (MT) is to unite its subsidiaries Cellplus and Telecom Plus under the Orange brand used by 40% shareholder France Telecom. Along with the rebranding, MT will offer new services and tariffs including lower roaming charges, rate reductions on user-selected numbers, and faster internet access speeds. No cost has been attributed to the rebranding or service expansion. ‘The only thing I can say is that Orange participated largely in the cost of the launch of this change of names,’ said MT CEO Sarat Lallah at a press conference yesterday.
