MTN Cameroon and CAMTEL sign a memorandum of understanding for the implementation of Local Roaming

Yaounde, 28 September 2021. MTN Cameroon and Cameroon Telecommunications (Camtel) announce the signing of a memorandum of understanding for the implementation of national roaming services. Under this memorandum of understanding, a CAMTEL subscriber could, in areas not covered by the company’s network, switch to MTN’s network to continue to access telecommunications services.

The memorandum of understanding was signed on 28 September 2021 in Yaounde, between the Managing Director of MTNC, Mr Stephen BLEWETT, and his counterpart from CAMTEL, Madam Judith YAH SUNDAY épse ACHIDI.

MTN Cameroon and Camtel are thus pioneers in Cameroon in particular and in Central Africa in general in the deployment of the “Local Roaming” solution thereby demonstrating once again that, although competition is rife in the telecommunications sector, business between operators can still be a reality.

This project will allow Camtel subscribers to switch automatically to the partner network and continue to enjoy, using their CAMTEL SIM cards, services such as sending and receiving national and international SMS, sending and receiving national and international calls, and Internet access.

This new partnership which links the South African giant to the Cameroonian incumbent operator, reflects the determination of the two operators to improve the customer experience of subscribers in Cameroon. “This is yet another act that demonstrates MTN’s commitment to contribute to the development of the telecommunications sector in Cameroon. We are thus launching national roaming, to ensure that all Cameroonians with a SIM card can remain reachable throughout the country,”said Stephen Blewett, Managing Director of MTN Cameroon.

For Madam ACHIDI née Judith YAH SUNDAY, CAMTEL’s General Manager, “Local Roaming is a form of infrastructure sharing used more and more by mobile telephony operators around the world to provide themselves with the means to ensure rapid territorial coverage. As a result, our strategy of presence and densification throughout the country will be based among other things on Local Roaming through the network of our partner MTN in areas where the CAMTEL network is not yet available in order to provide CAMTEL subscribers with quality service”.

The signing of this innovative agreement undoubtedly will increase the competitiveness of telecommunications operators in this constantly changing environment. Cameroon is therefore aligning itself with international standards with regard to national roaming services.
