(Ecofin Agency) - In the first quarter of 2019, another internet access provider will join the Tunisian market. BEE, a joint venture formed by Tunisian and foreign investors, will initially offer ADSL and VDSL services before extending its services to other branches like the FTTH, IPTV and telephony, the new company’s operations manager Karim Labidi informed.
According to the manager, the project is administratively and technically ready for launch. A network of sales points is actually being installed in the country to be as close to clients as possible to meet their needs.
BEE is counting on proximity and competitive prices to quickly gain a spot in the competitive market.
