CamTel recruiting for mobile network rollout

19 Mar 2015

Cameroon’s state-owned national telecoms operator CamTel has begun preparations for the deployment of its mobile communications network, having been awarded a wireless licence by the government in September last year. In a press release on its website, CamTel has issued a call for applications regarding the recruitment of technical staff to facilitate the rollout of a nationwide mobile voice and data network. Earlier this month South African-owned MTN and France’s Orange Cameroon agreed to each pay XAF75 billion (USD121 million) to renew their GSM licences for a further 15 years. Alongside the renewal, the cellcos also received permission to launch 3G and 4G services, enabling them to compete with Viettel Cameroon (Nexttel) in the high speed mobile data market.
