Guinea’s minister of communications Oye Guilavogui has announced that defunct state-owned full-service telecoms operator Societe des Telecoms de Guinee (Sotelgui) is expected to relaunch over the summer, and should be operational by the end of August 2015. According to local news site Aminata, Guilavogui has revealed that 61 cell sites are expected to be installed in ‘all the regional capitals’ to enable the network to go live by the proposed deadline.
