Vodafone launches lte data driven services in cameroon

Vodafone Cameroon launched its LTE high-speed data services today. With an initial investment of approximately US$40 million in the deployment of its state-of-the-art network, Vodafone Cameroon’s advanced services are initially available in Douala and Yaoundé, with plans to expand its footprint to other cities and towns.

Vodafone Cameroon is a Partnership Market of the global telecommunication group Vodafone that has mobile operations in 26 countries, fixed broadband operations in 17 markets and partners with mobile networks in 51 other countries.

As part of its launch proposition, Vodafone Cameroon has revealed its LTE special offer that gives customers a special data deal, a first in the Cameroonian market. Introduced on 23 September this unique offer was only available for a limited period resulting in more than 15,000 customers pre-joining the network over a period of 3 days.

The specialpre-launch offer,Gigalifegives customers 2GB for life at the special rate of 2,950 CFA. Customers who have pre-signed up to the network, and referred up to three friends, qualify for a bonus of up to 2GB additional data for any purchase of Gigalife bundle.

Additionally, customers can get a Mifi at a special launch price of 8,900 CFA.

Vodafone Cameroon’s prices for monthly data bundles range from an affordable 4,500F for 2GB to 14,000F for 10GB, a winning price value proposition for customers who are now able to benefit from easy downloads, surfing and streaming at world-class speeds.

“We are excited to launch in Cameroon, which is in line with our strategic vision to provision the country with innovative, next generation LTE services coupled with Vodafone’s unique value proposition,” said Vodafone Cameroon Chief Executive Officer Antoine Pamboro.

Pamboro also stated that, “Our products and services are tailored for everyone from individuals, to small and medium enterprises, large corporations seeking superior connectivity.”

Vodafone Cameroon will have 2 stores in Douala and Yaoundé, 4 shop-in-shops in Douala and 3 shop-in-shops in Yaoundé, bolstered by a network of more than 190 distributors and retailers offering a range of LTE handsets and devices. Stores situated in institutions of higher learning, as well as selected shopping malls bring a different shopping experience for communication services in Cameroon, by giving customers the chance to have the full in-store LTE experience.

Some of these Vodafone innovations that are all first on the Cameroonian market include:

Worry Free Data: When a customer’s bundle depletes, they are notified whether they would like to continue browsing on a Data Add-on, buy a new bundle or simply use Pay As You Go. This eliminates the situation of customers’ transitioning unknowingly and browsing from their main account thereby depleting funds on their account

My Vodafone App gives customers the flexibility to manage their account. They can top- up, track usage, purchase data bundles using a voucher, Debit or Credit card. Customers can download and use the app for free on the network.

Vodafone Chat+ enables customers to stay in touch with family and friends by making free audio in HD quality and messaging on the Vodafone network with anyone who has downloaded the app.

Data Add Ons: To further enjoy Vodafone’s worry free Internet, you can purchase an additional Data bundle at a discount. Add-on bundles can be bought as many times as you like provided you have a valid Data Bundle running. The Add-on bundles take the validity of your current Data Bundle. As a first time initiative in Cameroon, this gives you extra value for your money on your purchased Data bundle.

Multi Data SIM offer allows customers to purchase two additional Data SIM cards that are linked to a main SIM card. Customers are able to purchase Data bundles for the main SIM card and have the two additional Data SIM cards in different devices whilst using data from the same bundle.
