24 Jun 2019

Orange Cote d’Ivoire says it plans to invest XOF180 billion (USD312 million) in 2019-20 to improve and expand its networks and services. A report from Reuters cites Orange Cote d’Ivoire’s director Mamadou Bamba as saying: ‘The priority is the extension of 4G coverage which has become indispensable.’ He added that banking and energy services are also on its agenda. The French-owned telco is the largest fixed and mobile operator in Cote d’Ivoire. It launched 4G wireless services in February 2016, with rivals MTN and Moov introducing LTE later that year.
