Burkina Faso: Telecel kicks off 4G+ technology

(Ecofin Agency) - Mobile operator Telecel Faso launched 4G+ on Monday, December 7. The company comes on this segment behind Orange and the Office National des Télécommunications (Onatel) of Burkina Faso, a subsidiary of Maroc Telecom Group, which launched this mobile technology in January and March 2019 respectively.

According to Dimitri Ouédraogo, the CEO of Telecel Faso, 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," he said.

Present at the launching ceremony, the Minister of Development of the Digital Economy and Posts, Hadja Ouattara, said the 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."

The minister said that beyond these telecom licenses supposed to improve the quality of services provided to the population, "the State will continue to strengthen the infrastructure because we come from far away. Today, we have more than 7,000 kilometers of optical fiber in Burkina Faso."
