MTN Guinea To Launch Data, Payment Services

Mergers, Acquisitions and Financial Results

Amid growing interest in mobile technology and infrastructure in Guinea, mobile services operator MTN Guinea has announced plans to roll out data and payment services in March.

The company’s CEO Phumzile Joshua Phike has confirmed that the telecom operator will launch mobile data, mobile money transfer capability and payment services next month.

The announcement was made during an event sponsored by MTN in the country.

MTN, which introduced Wimax in 2011, will aim to deliver innovative, high quality services and provide customer satisfaction, the company said in a statement.

The mobile operator started operating in Guinea in 2006 and, according to information on its website, now has 2.5 million subscribers.

Industry observers in Guinea hope that rolling out new services will increase interest and overall penetration in the country.
