Africell already has close to six million customers

The executive director of Africell, the fourth mobile telephony operator in Angola, said this Wednesday that the Angolan telecommunications market "is growing well", already having close to six million customers.


Gonçalo Farias, who participated this Wednesday in a round table on a panel on Development and Access to Communications as a Factor for Digitization, said that it is necessary to increase "people's documentation so that they can actually have fluidity" in digital literacy.

"And it's not just in telecommunications, tomorrow whoever wants to change their gas supplier or whoever wants to change their television provider, if we know that we don't have the entire population with de facto documents we have to attack these basic causes", underlined Gonçalo Farias in statements to the press, on the sidelines of the 5th conference on Digital Transformation, promoted by the magazine Economia e Mercado, which took place under the motto "Telecommunications, Digitization and Financial Inclusion".

Regarding the company, the executive director of Africell highlighted that its infrastructure is growing every day.

"This week we launched services in yet another province, we are doing groundwork for construction and implementation in other locations, therefore, Africell is calmly complying with the schedule defined with the authorities and is making its way", he underlined.

Asked about the challenges related to the sharing of infrastructures, Gonçalo Farias underlined that "the market has no appetite for sharing and was not technically prepared, conceptualized, in the sense of doing that path".

"Now if much more could be done in the sharing of infrastructures? That for sure", he stressed.

Operating in the Angolan market since April this year, Africell at the start of the company's work considered the sharing of infrastructure one of the company's great challenges, which could condition the expansion of its services to the entire national territory.
