Gabon newcomer fits the bill

27 Mar 2009

Bahrain-based Bintel, which won Gabon’s fourth cellular licence last month, has contracted Redknee Solutions to deploy a converged billing and mobile money solution. Bintel won a 15-year 2G/3G licence and plans to launch commercial services in the third quarter of this year with an initial investment in excess of USD50 million, as part of a USD250 million expansion plan for Africa. It is targeting a 6% to 8% share of the Gabonese market within its first year of operating and a 30% share within ten years.
