Mozambique’s TMCEL gets unified licence

16 May 2019

The Communications Regulatory Authority of Mozambique (ARECOM, formerly INCM) has awarded state-backed fixed and mobile operator Mocambique Telecom (TMCEL) a new unified telecommunications licence. The unified concession enables TMCEL to provide services regardless of the technology used, relaxing the rules covering areas such as spectrum usage and numbering. TMCEL executive Mohamed Jusob was quoted as saying that the operator ‘is committed to be, within the next four years, the largest and best telecommunications company in the country’. Rival operator Vodacom Mozambique received its own unified licence in July 2018.
