Officially launched on Friday 21 October in Cotonou, Celtiis, the new 100% Beninese telephone operator, offers its subscribers attractive services at very competitive prices. The network already covers 80% of the country.
Designed and implemented by the Beninese State, Celtiis is under the aegis of Sbin Sa (Beninese Digital Infrastructure Company). It is the result of a successful South-South partnership between Benin and Senegal with the delegated management of Sbin by the Sonatel group, already present in five West African countries. The first global telecoms operator in Benin, Celtiis was born to accelerate Benin’s digital and economic inclusion, according to Thérèse Tounkara, Managing Director of SBIN. Celtiis is also a symbol of innovation, because its managers want to make it the favourite brand of the Beninese.
Celtiis covers 80% of Benin from launching
Celtiis is a brand 100% made in Benin. It identifies itself with the prefix 40 and number portability is possible with all other operators. The network already covers Grand Nokoué and all the departmental capitals to 100%. The other localities of the country are currently covered at 80% and the network is being extended to be accessible everywhere in the coming months. The director of the SBIN, Thérèse Tounkara, is delighted with this achievement. “It is extremely rare for a new mobile network to cover 80% of the population and territory on the first day of its launch,” she said proudly. He says the network offers new types of voice and internet packages with the best quality-price ratio in the market at 2G, 3G, 4G and 4G+ and will also be 5G compatible for future uses.
