The ICT sector in Cameroon is making steady progress enabling the
country to make better use of the digital economy. Currently, about 95%
of all electronic transactions are carried through the m-money services
operated by MTN Cameroon and Orange Cameroon. The government has also
been supportive, having launched its Cameroon Digital 2020 program,
aimed at improving connectivity nationally. A large number of small ICT
projects form part of the overall program. By September 2018 the SAIL
submarine cable had been laid, providing a direct link to Brazil and
with onward connectivity to other countries in the Americas. The cable
will substantially improve international bandwidth and lead to further
reductions in access prices for consumers.

Cameroon was for many years one of the few countries in Africa with only
two competing mobile operators. After some delays, Nextell Cameroon
(majority-owned by Viettel) launched a third network in late 2014,
including the country’s first 3G mobile service. The operator has grown
rapidly, signing up more than 4.89 million subscribers by late 2018. LTE
services have also developed strongly, with Orange Cameroon securing
revised concessions to its existing 3G licence to enable it to launch
LTE services and so compete more effectively with MTN. These
developments were the catalyst for a fast-developing mobile broadband
sector. The investment programs among operators over the next few years
will considerably boost mobile broadband services in rural areas of the
country, many of which are underserved by fixed-line infrastructure.

Further development is quickening in mobile banking and commerce, with
Nextell having launched its own m-money service in late 2018.

Key Developments:

  • Camtel contracts SatADSL for satellite broadband services;
  • Cable laying for the SAIL cable system to Brazil is completed;
  • Telecom revenue increases 3.3% in 2017, year-on-year;
  • Orange Cameroon expands LTE services;
  • Nextell Cameroon launches m-money service;
  • MNOs fined for SIM card registration failures;
  • National fibre rollout continues with new funding;

I have been involved with publishing and marketing for the past 37 years. My passion is helping people share their voice. I am able to do this through two important venues: One, with Area-Info.net where people can share everything from opinions to events to news. It is your choice! What do you want to share? Two, through a new program called America's Real Deal I am involved with to help business owners get their voice heard. For people who love to save money and earn while saving, there is a new program called the r network. You are provided with a card that entitles the user to automatic savings on more than 300,000 products. Learn more about the revv card today. This is by invitation only to be some of the first people to get this card. I schedule speaking engagements with community groups and business groups to share my passion about the importance of "sharing your voice". Contact me directly at [email protected] for scheduling information.
