Cote d’Ivoire: ARTCI strips Comium and GreenN of GSM licenses and reviews offers for a new concession

The Regulatory Authority for Telecommunications in Cote d’Ivoire (Autorite de Regulation des Telecommunications de CI, ARTCI) has revoked the licenses of operators GreenN and Comium after months of speculation. With three MNOs remaining – Orange, MTN and Moov, ARTCI is now considering offers for a fourth operator.
