In absolute value, this statistic reveals that 300,000 new clients joined this service in Cameroon, since there were only 2.4 million registered as at end June 2016.

With regards to the client base of this operator, we officially learned, it decreased by 1.3% to reach 9.5 million subscribers as at end September. A decrease which the company attributes to the result of the mobile customer registration process in Cameroon, which led to the deactivation of several chips by operators.
