Sierra Leone signs free roaming MoU with Guinea, Liberia and Cote d’Ivoire

1 May 2019

The Director General of Sierra Leone’s National Telecommunications Commission (NATCOM), Maxwell Massaquoi, signed on 26 April 2019 an MoU with telecommunications regulatory heads from Liberia, Guinea and Cote d’Ivoire that aims to implement the One Area Network initiative. Once this plan has been put into effect, mobile phone users visiting the signatory countries would be able to use their local numbers to make and receive calls at no extra cost. Efforts to promote integration in the Economic Community of West African States union have prompted telecoms regulatory bodies to develop partnerships to improve their domestic operations and ensure customers enjoy the benefits of roaming.
