TT launches in southernmost settlement

23 May 2014

Tunisie Telecom (TT) has begun rolling out 2G and 3G services in the remote, Saharan regions of the country and has launched services in Borj El Khadhra, the southernmost point of the nation, at the border with Algeria and Libya, local news portal Business News writes. Visiting the region for the launch, ICT minister Taoufik Jelassi commended TT on its success in connecting the region, despite the significant difficulties posed by the geography of the area. The state-backed operator is rolling out base stations in other settlements in the sparsely populated Tataouine governate, and is set to launch services in Tatatouine, Remada, Dehiba, Jbel Angar, Sangar, El Borma, Ain Skhouna and Tiarat.
