Maroc Telecom Group has said that its customers continue to grow (up 9.1 pc year-on-year), reaching 68.4 million during the first half of 2020. This increase is due partly to the consolidation of Tigo Chad into the Group’s since July 1, 2019.
As of June 30, 2020, its mobile customers reached 19.6 million, up slightly by 0.1 pc year-on-year thanks to the increase in the postpaid customer base (up 7.1 pc), says the leading Moroccan telecom operator in a press release.
According to the group’s first semester 2020 consolidated results, its mobile revenues decreased by 2.6 pc to €621 million due to the impact of the health crisis on international incoming, outgoing prepaid and roaming activities in particular.
However, its landline customers grew by 6.9 pc year-on-year, bringing the number of lines to nearly 2 million. The Broadband customer soared by 10.5 pc to 1.7 million subscribers.
Maroc Telecom Group, a leading operator in Africa, is present in 10 African countries.
Internationally, the overall number of its mobile customers reached 44.7 million including 9.2 million in Côte d’Ivoire; 9 million in Burkina Faso; 8 million in Mali; 4.3 million in Benin; 4.2 million in Chad; 3.1 million in Togo; 3 million in Niger; 2.4 million in Mauritania; 1.4 million in Gabon; and 184,000 in Central African Republic.
