Access to the new digital world
MTN Cameroon has developed the most robust and extended telecoms network in Cameroon and the Central African sub-region. The Cameroon subsidiary of the South African giant (MTN) has rapidly imposed itself as leader of the telecoms sector with roughly 10 million subscribers. This leadership derives from the hardware and software infrastructures that meet international standards with the 4G LTE, 3G and Wimax technologies, including GSM.
This constantly evolutive network by end of May 2017, comprised about 3600 base stations, 05 state-of-the-art technical centres with 3 Tiers-3 datacentres. MTN Cameroon through its extended network enables to cover roughly 93% of the population in Cameroon and guarantees redundant presence and service in all the agglomerations of more than 50 000 inhabitants. A reason why MTN Cameroon is considered as the major stakeholder of the on-going digital transformation of the country.

And to further ease the daily lives of users, the Mobile Money platform goes even farther notably with an ever-growing ecosystem. Taxes, TV, electricity, hotels, supermarkets, restaurants, e-commerce, money transfers are some of the areas that have embraced this modernity.
