NuRAN Wireless to create Madagascar subsidiary

12 September 2023

NuRAN Wireless is in the process of creating a local subsidiary in Madagascar. The company announced that it had initiated procedures with the Technology Regulatory Authority (ARTEC) to obtain an operating license.

This announcement comes approximately 9 months after it signed a 10-year agreement with Orange Madagascar for the deployment of 500 rural network telecommunications sites, under the network-as-a-service (NaaS) model.

The creation of a Malagasy subsidiary should enable NuRAN to comply with local regulations regarding the provision of electronic communications services. It should also allow it to win contracts from other telecoms service providers, as they seek to expand their networks to meet growing demand for broadband connectivity.

The company aims to have 10,000 telecoms sites under contract in Africa over the coming years.
