The government of Benin has a very clear vision regarding access for all and has undertaken, since 2016, a series of innovations in the digital field which has led to the digitization of many public services .

The digital transformation continues, and in 2020 the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way many businesses and individuals work. Working from home has become the norm, driving higher data usage and digital acceleration.

At MTN Benin, we believe that the populations we serve deserve the benefits of a modern connected life. And this has led to the modernization of our network which began in 2019, the ultimate goal being to ensure a great experience for our customers across the country.

For this year 2021, MTN has committed an additional 10 billion CFA of investment in the network, focused on extending 4G coverage throughout the country.

Thus, 89 sites will see their 4G technology capacity increased, the majority located in the northern region of the country.  

By the end of this year, 75% of the population will be covered by 4G technology. ” At MTN, we must participate in the digital transformation of Benin “, declared the Managing Director of MTN Benin, Uche OFODILE. ” We have set ourselves the goal of digitally empowering our communities. Benin continues its digital transformation and MTN Benin is taking an active part. It is our responsibility to ensure that every Beninese has equitable access to services that allow it to benefit from the advantages of a modern connected world. Our investment is indeed a reflection of our conviction “, she concluded.
