Mauritanian mobile operator Chinguitel has signed a contract with Ireland-based data monetisation solutions vendor Tango Telecom. According to a press release, the cellco will deploy Tango’s Data Retail Engine (DRE) solution to provide customers with more personalised and relevant digital content, including ‘targeted service and plan offers, on-device purchase and activation, real-time engagement, and personalised visibility and control’.

Following the fire that destroyed its main equipment on its technical site at Abidjan-Plateau on Monday, April 30, at 5am, the Orange Côte d'Ivoire will offer free calls this Saturday, June 3, 2018 (from 0h to 23h59). The fire that was deliberately started, according to Orange's top management, to sabotage its technical installations, resulted in the reduction of the company's capacity. These include fixed, international, roaming, fixed and mobile Internet, and Mobile Money services.
