9 Apr 2020

Liberian mobile operator Lonestar Cell-MTN published a statement earlier this week (6 April 2020) confirming that as part of efforts to boost coverage to remote towns and villages across the country, it has to date connected around 104 rural communities to its network. Most recently, new sites have been added in a number of counties – specifically, Grand Cape Mount, Nimba, Bong, Gbarpolu, Maryland, River Gee, Sinoe, Lofa and Grand Gedeh. In total, Lonestar Cell-MTN says that ‘more than 338,000 people’ living in these areas which were not previously covered by any mobile network, can now make voice calls and send text messages for the first time. ‘This is part of the significant investment Lonestar Cell-MTN is making to improve the experience for its customers and deliver reliable data and high-quality voice calls across Liberia,’ the company said in the statement.
