Regulator suspends activities of Vodafone Cameroon?

14 Sep 2017

Cameroon’s Telecommunications Regulatory Board (Agence de Regulation des Telecommunications – ART) has reportedly suspended the activities of 4G LTE provider Vodafone Cameroon, part of the Afrimax Group. According to a report by APA News, the decision was made by the Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications (Minpostel), which claims that the firm’s operating licence became invalid when it was transferred from Northwave to Afrimax Group.

As previously reported by TeleGeography’s CommsUpdate, Vodafone Cameroon expanded its 4G LTE network to the towns and cities of Bafoussam, Bamenda, Buea, Edea, Kribi, Kumba, Limbe and Mutengene last month, following the signing of a ‘strategic national network sharing agreement’ with CamTel. Under the deal, Vodafone is able to make use of the state-owned telecoms operator’s existing network infrastructure in Douala and Yaounde and to expand its coverage to new locations across the country.
