Sonatel launches 5G offers

14 June 2024

Sonatel (Orange) has launched 5G mobile offers in Senegal, offering ‘instant download and streaming speeds, as well as increased responsiveness for real-time applications, such as online gaming, virtual reality, telemedicine, e-education and more others.’

Sonatel's 5G network currently covers Dakar, Thiès, Saint-Louis, Diourbel, Kaolack and Louga, with 176 sites deployed. The company intends to extend the coverage of the latest generation mobile network to the entire Dakar region by the end of 2024.

The launch of Sonatel's mobile 5G should make it possible to democratize the service in a Senegalese telecoms market dominated by mobile consumers. This should also enable the company to strengthen its market leadership position, particularly in the internet segment.
