Africell secures Angolan telco licence

Africell has just finalised the deal to secure a mobile telecommunications operator’s licence in Angola.

Africell will join three other operators; Movicel, Unitel and state-owned Angola Telecom.

“Angola is amongst the most attractive investment destinations in sub-Saharan Africa,” Africell’s CEO and Chairman Ziad Dalloul said in a statement. “So we see this as the logical next step for Africell as we continue to grow our network.”

Africell currently provides service to around 12 million subscribers in Uganda, Sierra Leone, Gambia, and Democratic Republic of Congo.
