Camtel launches national tender for service providers

07 March 2023

Cameroon Telecommunications (Camtel) has launched a national tender to recruit local service providers to bolster its fixed network services via its broadband network architecture.

Through the outsourcing deal, the service providers will work towards growing Camtel’s customer base by engaging with potential new subscribers and generating interest in the telco’s fixed network open to the public.

The service providers will also carry out installation, connection, and maintenance of FTTx subscriber lines in Camtel’s fixed network.

Companies looking to bid must also have sufficient capital of at least 100 million francs CFA, and only local companies with proven skills, as well as administrative, technical, and financial capacities to deliver the required services, will be considered.

The bid has been divided into 20 lots - covering some key localities of the country - and each company is expected to select only one lot. Bidders for the retainer covering installation, connection, and maintenance must have an installer approval for electronic communications equipment and infrastructure issued by the Telecommunications Regulatory Board.
