The government of Timor-Leste has confirmed that local consortium Ceslink is submitting an application to become the country’s fourth telecoms operator.

According to a statement from the Council of Ministers, Ceslink intends to offer high-quality, high-speed, affordable and secure telecoms services in all areas of the country. If successful in its application, Ceslink will compete with three other players in the telecoms market, namely former monopoly operator Timor Telecom, Vietnamese-owned Viettel Timor-Leste (Telemor) and Telin Timor-Leste (Telkomcel), part of Telekomunikasi Indonesia International (Telin).
