Orange Sierra Leone launches 4G in Freetown

4 Apr 2019

Orange Sierra Leone has launched a 4G network in Freetown, in partnership with Ericsson. Orange will use Ericsson’s Radio System platform to offer 4G LTE services in 60 sites. The system will also allow the operator to deploy new features in high-traffic areas, before phasing them across its network footprint. Aminata Kane Ndiaye, CEO of Orange Sierra Leone, said: ‘Today marks a new era for mobile broadband in Sierra Leone. The 4G launch will bring consumer’s mobile experience to a whole new level – with higher speeds and reliable broadband access. Thanks to our successful cooperation with Ericsson we can offer 4G to our customers, facilitate network planning and maintenance and allow for smooth introduction of new IP-based services.’
