Less than three months after signing an agreement with Millicom, Orange has announced the completion of the acquisition of 100% of the mobile operator Tigo in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).
The mobile market in the DRC is undergoing significant growth and is currently the largest mobile market in Central and West Africa, after Nigeria. With a population of more than 80 million people and a relatively low mobile penetration rate of 50% of the population, the country offers considerable growth potential for Orange. The consolidation of Orange’s and Tigo’s operations in the DRC will enable Orange to strengthen its presence in the country.
