Orange Guinea awarded 4G licence

Orange Guinea, the country’s largest mobile network operator (MNO) by subscribers, has been awarded a 4G licence by the Regulatory Authority for Post and Telecommunications (ARPT). The ARPT this week also granted Orange Guinea an extension of ten years on its current 2G and 3G licences, while the new LTE licence will also be valid for the same duration. The award of a 4G licence to Orange makes it the first cellco in Guinea to have the capability of launching LTE services.
