Investcom launches new network

21 Apr 2006

Lebanese wireless holding group Investcom has announced the launch of its newest cellular operation, in the west African state of Guinea. Services, offered under the group’s preferred Areeba banner, are initially only available in the capital city of Conakry, although national coverage is a long-term goal. Investcom was awarded its operating licence by the Guinean government last year and swiftly selected Ericsson to install the new equipment. According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms database, Areeba will compete for customers with three others, namely Telecommunications de Guinee, SpaceTel and Intercel Guinee.
