Orange introduces trial LTE service in Cote d’Ivoire

16 Jun 2014

Orange Cote d’Ivoire has introduced 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology in selected areas of the capital city Abidjan, albeit on an experimental basis. Coverage is currently limited to the upmarket suburb of Cocody, the commune of Marcory and the area surrounding Port Bouet Airport. Orange subscribers with an LTE-compatible smartphone can currently test the network for free, while the operator remains optimistic that it will secure approval from the Autorite de Regulation des Telecommunications de Cote d’Ivoire (ARTCI) to deploy the technology commercially on a nationwide basis.
