Set’Mobile, the mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) owned by Cameroonian footballer Samuel Eto’o, has officially launched commercial services, reports local technology news site TIC Mag. Around 50,000 customers have subscribed to the service since it was first unveiled in December 2011. The new company aims to bring cheap mobile voice and data services to the market, in which South Africa’s MTN Cameroon and Orange Cameroun of France are the sole network operators. Set’Mobile has signed a partnership deal with Orange to provide services over its infrastructure.
