Gabon and Congo have signed a mobile roaming memorandum of understanding (MoU), with the agreement to be implemented before December 2019.
Under the terms of the deal, subscribers would pay no charge for incoming calls, up to a maximum of 300 minutes per subscriber a month.
Outgoing calls would be billed at the local network operator’s rates, while the higher of the two national rates would be applied for calls made to both countries.
The deal was agreed and signed by the heads of Gabon’s Regulatory Agency for Electronic Communications and Posts (l’Agence de Regulation des Communications Electroniques et des Postes, ARCEP) and the Republic of Congo’s Regulatory Agency for Electronic Communications and Post (L’Agence de Regulation des Postes et des Communications Electroniques, ARPCE).
