MTN Cameroon has exceeded the 10 million active subscribers mark. The 10 millionth subscriber connected to the MTN network on 17 June 2014 in Ndogbong in Douala, the economic capital of the country.
MTN says this consolidates its position as leader of the mobile telephony market in Cameroon and sustainably affirms it as a major stakeholder of the national socio-economic landscape. Today, roughly 46% of the overall population of Cameroon lives daily with MTN and about 6 Cameroonians out of 10 who own a mobile phone, use the MTN network.
Born in February 2000 through the acquisition of Camtel Mobile by the MTN International Group, MTN Cameroon is today quoted as a model of the privatization policy led since 1995 by the Cameroon Government. MTN Cameroon has notably equipped the country with a state-of-the-art and an extended communication network which democratizes access to telephony, contributes towards the development of the remotest areas and improves the competitiveness of Businesses.
Its daily activity employs roughly 200 000 youths and its impact, each day, confirms MTN Cameroon as a key player of the national economy which supports the growth of local SMEs and promotes Cameroonian competences. MTN Cameroon also works on a daily basis through the MTN Foundation for the welfare of communities by providing solutions that ease access by the greater majority to potable water, health care and quality education.
In a letter of recognition addressed to its subscribers, Karl O. Toriola, Chief Executive Officer of MTN Cameroon expressed his gratitude for their confidence bestowed on MTN and renewed the commitment of the enterprise to always listen to them, and offer them the best possible customer experience which they are entitled to enjoy from an innovative telecommunications operator leader.
