Our family continues to grow: welcome Burkina Faso!
Orange is pleased to announce today the launch of its brand in Burkina Faso. This official start of business under the Orange brand comes less than a year after the Group finalized its acquisition of Airtel in this country.
Thanks to an ambitious strategic plan, Orange Burkina Faso's customers will soon be able to benefit from the network quality, customer experience and outstanding innovation that have established Orange as a world leader for telecoms. In Burkina Faso, Orange has already announced plans to invest FCFA 100 billion over the coming months to further strengthen and extend its 3G network, before the future launch of 4G.
With 18 million inhabitants and a relatively high mobile penetration rate for the region (85% of the population), Orange Burkina Faso is now the country's second largest mobile operator with nearly six million customers for fixed and mobile telephony.
The aim is to position Burkina Faso as one of the best connected African countries and contribute to its economic and social development.
