MainOne has received a C1B licence allowing it to expand national and international connectivity services in Côte D’Ivoire.
“Côte d’Ivoire is the largest economy in the West African Economic and Monetary Union (WAEMU) and a very important hub for business and transport in west Africa,” said Funke Opeke, chief executive officer of MainOne.
“The dynamism of the national economy and accelerated development of the digital economy in Côte d’Ivoire as well as its regional leadership makes it a natural hub for the west African region and guided MainOne’s decision to invest in Côte d’Ivoire.”
