Vodafone Cameroon service shut down following licencing issues
September 22, 2017
Vodafone Cameroon was forced to shut down their service on 14 September 2017, following investigations into the company’s wireless broadband operation. Vodafone Cameroon - an Afrimax-Vodafone joint company began offering wireless broadband services in Cameroon in September 2016.
In November 2014, Afrimax, an African wireless broadband operator and telecoms management company, entered a strategic partnership agreement with Vodafone Group that allowed the two companies to enter new African telecommunications markets, launching mobile and wireless broadband services in Uganda, Zambia, Ghana and Cameroon.
Through the Partner Market Agreement, Vodafone was able to extend their global footprint whilst Afrimax gained continued access to a range of Vodafone products, networks, and services. In all four countries, services are offered under the Vodafone Country brand and the company entities are being referred to as part of Afrimax Group.
