Africell to launch its telecom service by mid-2021 in Angola

Africell, new licensee in Angola is set to launch its commercial services by mid-2021.Earlier this month, Africell was officially confirmed as Angola’s fourth recipient of a Unified Global License which will allow fixed, mobile, internet and pay TV services. The company is still in negotiation with the Angolan government regarding the final terms of the license.

Ian Paterson, Chief Investment Officer noted that Angola was “very attractive because there is very little real competition. Unitel is a dominant player in the market and customers suffer as a result.”

He noted that new players in the market would foster more competitive pricing and service quality, saying that Africell would offer “pricing plans that are much more creative and flexible” with “’more high-speed solutions, more value-added services.”
