Experts in the Digital Economy say that to effectively develop the Digital economy in Cameroon, broadband electronic communications infrastructure and IT should be developed. 

"In the field of Digital economy,  SND 30 focused on the first pillar concerning the development of electronic communications infrastructure. Cameroon therefore plans to reconfigure the national Digital ecosystem, in particular through the restructuring of the sector by creating a digital infrastructure heritage company; to build the substantial Digital infrastructure and generally secure the networks." The GM highlighted.

The New Mission and Vision of CAMTEL

Since the appointment of Judith Yah Sunday Epse Achidi, CAMTEL has redeveloped its efforts to place customers at the centre of their operations. 

This has led to the construction of a 12,000 KM of optical fibre. This falls squarely with the development strategy as CAMTEL plans to connect households and businesses to the already installed optical fibre.

The company also wants to extend its geographical coverage, improve the quality of internet services and the offer of new and more attractive products.

CAMTEL predicts that the telecommunications sector should experience a growth of 6.4% in 2030.

The CAMTEL Digital infrastructure Day took place at the Yaounde Hilton Hotel, Tuesday 16th January 2024.
