Mobile operator Telecel Faso rolled out 4G+ in Burkina Faso. Telecel Faso joins this segment behind Orange and the Office National des Télécommunications (Onatel) of Burkina Faso, a subsidiary of Maroc Telecom Group, which introduced this mobile technology in January and March 2019 respectively.
According to the CEO of Telecel Faso, Dimitri Ouédraogo, ‘’The company has taken the time necessary to build a network that is robust, secure and extremely reliable to offer the best possible experience of very high-speed broadband to the population. In terms of connectivity, in terms of cost, we’re going to make a difference.”
During the launching ceremony, the Minister of Development of the Digital Economy and Posts, Hadja Ouattara, stated that this occasion marks the end of the “process of awarding technology-neutral licenses to operators for 15 years; a process that began at the end of 2017.”
