CamTel issued new fixed, mobile licences

16 Mar 2020

Cameroonian telecoms operator CamTel has received three licences from the Telecommunications Regulatory Board (ART), following a restructuring of the state-owned firm last year. ITWeb Africa reports that one of the concession agreements allows CamTel to operate a nationwide public GSM network. The firm’s fixed telecommunications network licence has been renewed, while a new licence for the establishment and operation of a nationwide transport network, including submarine cable landing stations, has also been issued.

Commenting on the licence awards, Minister of Posts and Telecommunications Minette Libom Li Likeng said: ‘The granting of these concession agreements to CamTel aims to enhance the productivity of the national operator, in order to increase the supply of quality electronic telecommunications services at affordable prices.’
