(Business in Cameroon) - Canadian company NuRAN Wireless, known for delivering wireless infrastructure solutions for mobile and broadband, has revealed plans for the deployment of 21 new sites and capacity upgrades on five existing sites. The initiative, announced on January 30, is part of a project undertaken for Orange Cameroon, aimed at enhancing the quality and coverage of its network.

This initiative comes at a time marked by the degradation of service quality for all mobile operators in Cameroon. NuRAN Wireless's operation aims to improve the quality and coverage of Orange Cameroon's network, especially following the issuance of a Category 1 license to the Canadian company by Cameroonian authorities in October 2023.

As per the country's regulations, a Category 1 license is awarded to promoters involved in "public radio-electric networks in one or more localities; networks for collecting and distributing services for public electronic communication; public electronic communication networks in rural areas; public open virtual networks, and passive infrastructures that support electronic communication networks." In alignment with these criteria, NuRAN Wireless is classified as a promoter of "passive infrastructures supporting electronic communication networks."

NuRAN Wireless's presence in Cameroon allows it to explore new contracts in the local telecom market, which offers numerous opportunities. In a statement on February 13, 2023, the Director-General of the Telecommunications Regulatory Agency (ART), Philémon Zoo Zame, revealed that mobile and fixed-line operators MTN, Orange, and Camtel committed to making short-term cumulative investments of CFA156 billion to enhance their service quality.
