Orange Cameroon has managed to attract 6.5 million customers, well, this is according to an internal document brought to Ecofin’s attention.
This means that the telecommunication company is the second most preferred telecommunications company in the country, coming after MTN which holds the significant number of customers, 8.2 million.
This means that Cameroon has a total of 14.7 million cellular phone customers (out of a total population of 20 million), compared to 13 million on late 2012. This was revealed by the Telecommunications Regulations Agency (TRA) last year.
Since the opening of the mobile phone market in Cameroon at the start of the new millennium, MTN and Mobilis, which later became Orange, have been the only operators despite the granting of a third licence to the Vietnamese company, Viettel in 2012. The newcomer is expected to start business in September 2014 after two postponements.
