17 April 2023

Senegal’s telecoms regulator announced plans to introduce national roaming between operators to bolster coverage in the country.

Talks are underway between Orange, Free and Expresso Telecom to lay the necessary framework for the agreements, and Karim Sall, director general of L’Autorite de Regulation des Telecommunications et des Postes, ARTP) reported that an assessment would take place at the end of April to determine whether operators have achieved prior coverage targets, stipulated in mobile licenses.

“We will measure obligation by obligation the level of achievement or the level of respect of these obligations by the operators,” said Sall.
