Cameroon is set to receive a third mobile operator following the launch of a new network backed by local footballer Samuel Eto’o, the Cameroon Tribune reports. Set’Mobile is scheduled to go live on 21 January 2012, the opening day of the Africa Cup of Nations, joining South Africa’s MTN Cameroon and Orange Cameroun of France in the local wireless market. The network, which is designed to bring cheap mobile voice and data services to the country, was unveiled last month and more than 50,000 SIM cards have already been sold, according to local press.
