Orange Senegal cuts cost of voice calls and internet access

19 Jun 2013

Following a one-year consultation with its customers, Senegalese mobile operator Orange Senegal, a wholly owned subsidiary of fixed line incumbent Sonatel, itself a 42.30%-owned subsidiary of France Telecom-Orange, has announced plans to introduce new, cheaper voice calls and mobile internet access rates – a move that it says will benefit the more than 7.2 million subscribers on its books. Agence Ecofin quotes the firm’s deputy general manager Jerome Henique as saying that the cuts are in answer to consumer feedback and will see new per-second billing fees being set for its pre-paid (Diamono) range. Meanwhile, the cellco’s mobile internet service fees will be cut by up to 80% (to USD0.0002 per kB of data), while network service upgrades now promise maximum download speeds of 21Mbps, he said.
