Africell Sierra Leone (a subsidiary of Lintel Holding) announced that it has crossed the one million active subscriber mark. In November 2009, Africell acquired Tigo Sierra Leone (a Millicom group company) in a market consolidation move.

In the group CEO's own words, "the 1 million active subscribers in Sierra Leone is just a benchmark of a promising future with a mere 29% penetration rate and 55% population coverage".

The country now has three mobile networks, with a fourth licensed but yet to launch. According to figures from the Mobile World, their respective market shares are: Zain (26.3%); Comium (15%); Africell (58.7%).
