The penetration rate of cellular communication reached 85%, with a population of 12.9 million people.
The telecommunication market in Guinea received a strong impetus for development after MTN Group and Orange Group started operating in the mobile sector. Over the next few years, the penetration rate of cellular communications has grown dramatically and continues to grow steadily. To date, there are 3 major operators in the mobile sector of Guinea, which are actively competing with each other. Orange leads the market as the number of its subscribers has exceeded 6 million. MTN has about 3.5 million connections, the third operator Cellcom more than 2 million.
Ninety-nine percent of the local population enjoy prepaid mobile communications, as a result, local operators have many offers on this type of subscription. SIM-cards are cheap as they cost about $0.6 per piece, and the subscriber immediately gets a credit for the same amount and the 5-day bonus period. Accordingly, the cost of purchasing new subscriber numbers for the termination is reduced to zero.
