    Algeria telecoms: Fixed-line telephone services to expand

    The Consortium Algérien des télécommunications (CAT) launched fixed-line services in late February. The company, which is a 50:50 joint venture between Telecom Egypt (which is partly state-owned) and Orascom Telecom, also of Egypt, is the second fixed-line operator in Algeria. CAT won a 15-year renewable licence for these operations in 2005. It paid US$65m for the licence, which allows it to compete in the supply of local, national and international services. The services are being marketed under the name Lacom, and are currently on offer in the capital, Algiers. Plans call for the eventual expansion of Lacom to cover the entire country, with CAT suggesting that coverage in Oran and Constantine will be priorities. In total, the company expects to invest around US$1bn in fixed-line services. Fixed-line coverage in Algeria is, at present, very low. The International Telecommunications Union (ITU) suggests that in 2004 only about 7% of the population had fixed-line services, putting the country on a par with Eritrea. Unsurprisingly in these circumstances, Internet usage is even lower—the ITU estimated that in 2004 only about 2.6% of the population used the Internet. Such low levels of usage mean that Algeria compares poorly with the rest of the region—the ITU suggests that only Yemen and Iran have lower per capita Internet usage than Algeria. CAT has said that it intends to provide a range of both voice and high-speed data services to the local market, which should help both to address the lack of fixed-line services and to encourage residential Internet use.

    Orascom Telecom Holdings reported revenues up 36 percent to USD 2.06 billion in the first half, compared with USD 1.51 billion in the year-earlier period. The growth is mainly due to a 93 percent increase in subscribers to 35.32 million at the end of June from 21.21 million a year earlier. The group's GSM revenue increased to USD 1.85 billion from USD 1.32 billion, the remainder coming from other telecom and internet services. Orascom's Algerian mobile subsidiary Djezzy accounted for 35 percent of sales, followed by Mobilink Pakistan with 24 percent, Iraqna with 13 percent and Mobinil with 10 percent. Group EBITDA grew to USD 918.66 million from USD 653.08 million, and net profit increased to USD 331.14 million from USD 295.29 million.

    SHENZHEN, China -- ZTE Corporation, a leading global provider of telecommunications equipment and network solutions, has been awarded a contract to supply optical network equipment to ATM Mobilis, the largest mobile operator in Algeria.

    Under the contract, ZTE is to provide its field-proven optical products including transmission equipment, power supply, optical network management software and SDH/PDH analyzers. The contract marks a break-through of ZTE's optical network equipment in Algeria.

    As the largest mobile operator in Algeria, ATM Mobilis is ambitious to further expand its GSM business. With construction of the new optical network, ATM Mobilis expects to strengthen its existing competitiveness of rich bandwidth both to bring better using experience for its current customers and attract more news ones.

    "We are pleased to cooperate with ATM Mobilis, the most important GSM operator in Algeria", said Mr. Zou Ying, General Manager of ZTE Algeria, "Our optical products have been deployed in more than 60 countries including China, Indonesia, India and Nigeria. Working with our local partners like ATM Mobilis, we hope to utilize the field-proven products and our technologies to bring better network experience for Algeria people."

    Internationally, ZTE increased sales by nearly 70% in 2005 due in large part to investment in R&D, which has been maintained at a level of 10 per cent of annual turnover. With continuing success in the African and Asian markets, ZTE expects to replicate these achievements in more developed telecoms markets such as Europe and North America in the future.

    Djezzy vient de lancer une offre inédite sur le marché algérien. Ses clients du prépayé peuvent bénéficier de communications gratuites pouvant dépasser 900 minutes, a annoncé l’opérateur dans un communiqué publié hier. Djezzy, qui se qualifie d’opérateur «le plus généreux sur le marché», permet à ses clients de téléphoner gratuitement pendant 55 minutes à partir de la 5e minute d’appel, et ce, de minuit à 17 heures, d’où un total de 935 minutes peut être potentiellement offert à chaque client, puisque le nombre des appels est illimité dans la tranche horaire susmentionnée.

    Une offre «exceptionnelle» qui permet aux clients de la communauté Djezzy de communiquer tout simplement «en toute liberté» dans un réseau qui compte plus de 10 millions d’Algériens, estime-t-on au niveau de l’opérateur. Cette opération a été lancée, explique-t-on, après avoir constaté l’engouement de la dernière offre, qui consistait à offrir des communications gratuites à partir de la 3e minute.

    Grâce à cette offre du mois intitulée «Djezzy gèle le temps», l’opérateur permet ainsi à ses clients de se parler entre eux sans restriction aucune. «Au-delà du bénéfice inestimable et sans pareil des centaines de minutes offertes gratuitement, nos clients peuvent communiquer en toute liberté sans regarder leur montre ni compter les minutes», conclut l’opérateur.

    Pour s’inscrire à cette promotion inédite, il suffit d’appeler au numéro 720 de Djezzy.

    Djezzy offre jusqu’à 935 minutes de communications gratuites
