Ooredoo says that it has launched its 3G network in Algeria this week just hours after it was granted a 3G license by the regulator.
Coverage is initially available in ten major cities across the country. Customers will however need a second 3G-enabled number from Ooredoo, and add it to their existing SIM card.
Joseph Ged, CEO, Ooredoo Algeria, said: "We're proud to say that our 3G network went live within 10 days of finalising the licensing process and within twelve hours of receiving final approval from the regulator."
Ooredoo now offers customers a range of weekly, monthly and special mobile Internet packages, including a new "Unlimited Internet data offer", the first of its kind in Algeria.
