Gabon and Togo sign MoU on free roaming

11 Aug 2022

Gabon and Togo signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on 4 August to abolish roaming charges between the two countries. The telecoms regulators of the two countries noted the agreement will result in a substantial drop in the price of mobile services (voice, data and SMS) while roaming, with outgoing calls billed at the local rate and no charge for incoming calls. In order to ensure swift implementation of the deal, a delegation from Togolese mobile operators Togocom and Moov Africa Togo arrived in Libreville on 6 August to discuss the technical aspects with their counterparts at Gabon Telecom (Moov Africa) and Airtel Gabon.
