The Regulatory Authority for Telecommunications in Cote d’Ivoire (Autorite de Regulation des Telecommunications de Cote d’Ivoire, ARTCI) is looking to implement network sharing to speed up the rollout of 5G networks by the country’s mobile operators. A report from Ecofin says the watchdog is looking for a contractor to manage the network sharing process.
The Cote d’Ivoire government is hoping to see the commercial launch of 5G services by the start of the African Cup of Nations (CAN) football tournament in January. Earlier this year MTN Cote d’Ivoire said it had already installed a number of 5G test sites in the capital Abidjan and the interior of the country.
