Mattel extends mobile licence for another five years

8 Jun 2015

Mauritania’s telecoms watchdog, the Autorite de Regulation (ARE), has renewed the 2G mobile licence of Mattel (Mauritano-Tunisienne de Telecommunication) for a further five years from 4 June. Mattel, a 51% subsidiary of Tunisie Telecom (TT), has seen a number of restrictions on its concession tightened, including commitments over the provision of services, network coverage, quality of service, information reporting for consumer protection and the optimisation of numbering and frequency resources. Mattel is the smallest of Mauritania’s three mobile providers in subscriber terms, with around 19.4% of the overall market at the end of March 2015, according to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database.
