Orange Deploys 4G Technology In Guinea

The telecom service operator, Orange, rolled out its 4G technology in Guinea, Conakry on May 9, 2019. The new service is said to cover Dixinn, Kaloum, Ratoma, Matam, Matoto and all the other communities in Guinea’s capital city.

According to Orange, the technology will later also be deployed in other parts of the country as specified in the guidelines set in its contract terms and conditions. The contracted agreement provides for at least 90% of Guinea’s population to be covered.

Sékou Dramé, the Managing Director of Orange Guinea, said that the 4G would allow Orange Guinea the strength to better the lives of Guineans by offering them new growth and development opportunities that they didn’t have before.

He added that Orange hopes that its accomplishments in Guinea will see the telco shine as a force to be reckoned with in the sub-region, the continent, as well as globally.

On March 4, 2019, Orange secured a 10-year global licence for a staggering fee of $90 million. With the rollout of 4G, Orange takes comfort in its position as Guinea’s market leader with a 67% market share ahead of its main competitor MTN and Cellcom.

The telco expects to reel in new subscribers and gain more market share.
