17 Jan 2007

Médi Télécom (Meditel), Morocco’s second largest cellco, has revealed that it had signed up 100,000 residential fixed line customers by the beginning of this month, having launched wireless in the local loop (WiLL) services last May under the Tilifoune Dialdar banner. Meditel won the country’s second national fixed line licence in July 2005, whilst ISP Maroc Connect was awarded the third operating concession in September 2005. This week Maroc Connect unveiled a new brand name, WANA, under which it will launch a rival telephony service.
