Maroc Telecom enlists Nokia, Ericsson, Huawei for ‘4G+’ rollout

13 Jul 2015

Maroc Telecom has announced that it has enlisted a trio of international vendors to support its deployment of ‘4G+’ (i.e. LTE-A) technology. The suppliers have been named as Nokia Networks of Finland, Ericsson of Sweden and Huawei of China. A media statement from the telco read: ‘The choice of multiple vendors is part of Maroc Telecom’s strategy to diversify its supply sources to maintain the autonomy and flexibility for future developments’. The 225Mbps 4G+ network is poised to be introduced on a commercial basis today (13 July). At launch, the network will cover provincial centres, major highways and key railway networks.

According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, in March 2015 Maroc Telecom paid MAD1 billion (USD102.5 million) for 4G-suitable frequencies in the 800MHz, 1800MHz and 2600MHz bands.
