Mobilis LTE reaches all Algerian provinces; passes 10m 4G users

5 Feb 2020

Algerie Telecom Mobile (Mobilis), a 100%-held subsidiary of state-owned Algerie Telecom, announced on its website that its commercial 4G LTE mobile network now covers all 48 wilayas (provinces) of Algeria, as of 1 February 2020, having switched on network sections in 16 additional wilayas. The full LTE footprint went live under authorisation from the Authority for Regulation of Post & Electronic Communications (Autorite de Regulation de la Poste et des Communications Electroniques, ARPCE), after Mobilis’ existing LTE network met the regulator’s minimum obligations of service quality and coverage.

Cellular market leader Mobilis simultaneously announced that it has passed the milestone of ten million LTE subscribers, having launched its 4G network in October 2016.
