Inwi launches LTE services in 26 cities

17 Jun 2015

Moroccan mobile operator Inwi (Wana) has launched ‘free’ 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) services today, with the network advertised as being accessible ‘nationwide’. According to the operator’s website, the 4G service is available in 26 cities, namely: Casablanca, Fes, Rabat, Sale, Temara, Marrakech, Agadir, Tanger, Mohammedia, Meknes, Kenitra, El Jadida, Tetouan, Martil, Oujda, Nador, Safi, Settat, Berrechid, Khouribga, Beni Mellal, Taroudant, Berkane, Skhirate, Dar Bouazza and Laayoune. In order to use the 4G broadband service, potential subscribers need to acquire 4G SIM card and to have a compatible device (smartphone, tablet, modem or router).

As previously reported by CommsUpdate, in mid-March 2015 the Agence Nationale de Reglementation de Telecom (ANRT) awarded three 20-year LTE licences to the country’s mobile operators. Medi Telecom (Meditel), an affiliate of Paris-based Orange Group, launched the country’s first LTE service in Casablanca last week, with the 4G service subsequently extended to Rabat and Sale.
