French Orange pumps $24.8mln into network upgrade in Guinea Bissau

(Ecofin Agency) - Senegal’s national telecoms corporation Sonatel, the parent company of mobile operator Orange Bissau, launched last May 31, a program to upgrade its network and extend telecom coverage to more than 1,000 new villages in Guinea-Bissau. The telecom company mobilized CFA13.4 billion ($24.8 million) for this plan which aims to guarantee millions of people quality access to the 3G+ and 4G network.

During the launching ceremony, in the village of Bijimita, Orange Bissau said: "This major investment demonstrates the strong commitment of the Orange Group to contribute to the socio-economic development of Guinea Bissau, particularly in the field of telecoms, digitalization, and financial inclusion."

The company says this new investment reflects its commitment to continue efforts to provide Bissau Guineans with national coverage and an upgraded network while contributing to the country's digital transformation. By giving more people access to quality telecom services, Orange Bissau wants to contribute to the country's digital transformation. The telecom company will promote digital and financial inclusion.

Let’s note that with the growing demand for connectivity that came with the Covid-19 pandemic, there is strong competition between companies active in the country’s telecom market.
