Gabon Telecom is to be allocated additional licenses to offer 3G and 4G services a government statement has announced.
A bilateral meeting between the heads of the governments of Morocco and Gabon was held last week, and amongst the 24 agreements signed between the two countries, was a note about Gabon Telecom being granted the additional licenses.
Gabon Telecom is a 51% owned subsidiary of Morocco based Maroc Telecom. The remaining 49% is owned by the Gabonese government.
It was not clear from the short comment when the licenses will be granted, or what payments, if any will be required.
Gabon Telecom is the largest telecom company in Gabon with around 1 million customers.
