MTN Cameroon and state-owned CamTel (Blue) have announced the commercial launch of national roaming in Nkoteng, after a strategic agreement was signed between the two telecoms operators earlier this year. The move will allow CamTel to expand 2G, 3G and 4G coverage in areas of the country that are not already covered by its network. In the first phase, roaming has been enabled locally at more than 200 mobile sites, with this coverage set to be progressively expanded in the near future.
‘We are extremely pleased with the launch of local roaming on MTN Cameroon’s network. This service will allow CamTel customers to access network service in areas already covered by MTN where CamTel is not currently present,’ stated CamTel’s General Director Judith Yah Sunday Achidi, adding: ‘At CamTel, we have the ambition to continue to grow our mobile telephony service and footprint and selected MTN Cameroon as a partner in this regard. We look forward to more of our customers enjoying voice and data services across various regions.’
