14 Nov 2014

Maroc Telecom is planning to upgrade its mobile network in several locations, including Tangier, Kenitra, El Jadida, Laayoune and Ouarzazate, during the month of November, domestic news source Le Matin reports. The cellco aims to expand and improve the coverage and quality of its 3G networks in these locations and prepare the infrastructure for a potential migration to 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology. The network expansion is part of Maroc Telecom’s modernisation programme, which was launched back in 2012; the operator has signed four investment agreements with the Moroccan government for a total of EUR3.9 billion (USD4.86 billion) to carry out the work.
