Telecom operator Orange launched the 4G mobile technology in Conakry, Guinea on May 9, 2019. The new service already covers all the areas of the capital: Kaloum, Dixinn, Ratoma, Matoto and Matam.
As part of a second phase, it will be deployed to cover the whole country, in accordance with the guidelines set by the specifications, which provides coverage for at least 90% of the population.
The Managing Director of Orange Guinea, Sékou Dramé stated that the 4G will give Orange Guinea strength to accompany Guineans by offering them growth and development opportunities to which they aspire to shine in the sub-region, the continent and globally.
The launch of 4G by Orange occurs almost two months after obtaining a global license valid for ten years, against the sum of 90 million US dollars. With the launch of the 4G, Orange takes comfort in its position as the market leader with 67% market share ahead of Cellcom and MTN, its main competitor. It expects to secure new subscribers and gain new market shares.
