In brief

29 June 2018


Mauritanian cellcos Mauritel, Chinguitel and Mattel are under threat of new sanctions for failing to provide adequate quality of service (QoS). According to a report from Agence Ecofin, local telecoms watchdog Autorite de Regulation (ARE) carried out network testing between 29 April and 5 June. It found Mauritel and Mattel’s services failing in six cities and towns, while Chinguitel’s failed to meet required standards in 14 cities and towns. State-backed Mauritel is currently the subject of a customer boycott due to its poor QoS record.
