4G licences finally allocated in Mauritania

5 Oct 2020

The government of Mauritania has finally awarded three provisional 4G licences following several failed attempts to offload concessions going back to 2018. Incumbent cellcos Mauritel, Chinguitel and Mattel have agreed to acquire nationwide licences, with Mattel offering MRU501 million (USD13.2 million) plus 2.5% annual 4G turnover and its two rivals submitting bids of MRU500 million plus 2.5% of annual 4G turnover. The trio were given 15 days to pay the fixed part of the licence cost.
