23 Nov 2020

Togo Cellulaire (Togocel) has been granted a licence to trial 5G services in real world conditions in the country, according to the government’s portal, Republique. The move comes two years after Togocel, the mobile arm of holding company TogoCom, switched on its 4G network, with the long term objective being to offer the Togolese population speeds four times faster than those offered by 4G by 2025 – part of the owner’s seven-year development programme for the company.

According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, Togocel leads the way in the mobile market with around 3.4 million subscribers at end-September 2020, a market share of 52%, ahead of the country’s second player Moov Togo, with 48%.
