UK mobile giant Vodafone Group is reportedly in a strong position to bid for a fourth mobile network operating licence in Angola, according to local news sources including TPA/SAPO. The Angolan government recently announced the imminent launch of an international competitive tender for a fourth converged ‘Unified Global’ operating licensee (mobile, fixed, TV) to enter the market alongside established cellcos Unitel and Movicel, and fixed line provider Angola Telecom (which intends to become the third mobile player in 2018). According to unnamed sources, Vodafone has already expressed its interest in the tender to the Angolan authorities.
