Togo: Government states formal aim to license MVNO

Telecoms

The government of Togo has set out its stall to grant a licence to a ‘full-blown’ mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) in the country, with the Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications confirming it has issued a notice of call for expressions of interest, which will be followed by a ‘restricted’ tender.

No further details were revealed on the decision which follows an announcement from Togo’s Minister of Post and Telecommunications, Cina Lawson, last month saying that the government was considering plans to set up MVNOs in the country.
