Vodafone and Afrimax Group, a 4G-LTE telecommunications operator in sub-Saharan Africa - have recentlyjointly announced a new non-equity Partner Market agreement for Cameroon. The two companies will launch LTE data services under the ‘Vodafone Cameroon’ brand initially in Cameroon’s two biggest cities, Douala and Yaoundé.

The roll out of Vodafone Cameroon for consumers and businesses will include the opening of Vodafone branded retail stores and kiosks in key locations, supported by a network of distributors and resellers offering an attractive range of LTE handsets and devices.

Vodafone Cameroon will offer small and medium enterprises a range of connectivity products including LTE and Wi-Fi mobile data services, fixed Internet and a suite of office solutions available at retail and through direct sales channels.

The launch in Cameroon builds further on the framework agreement between Vodafone and Afrimax, announced in November 2014, to co-operate and explore potential Partner Market opportunities in a variety of territories in sub-Saharan Africa. 

As part of the agreement, Vodafone and Afrimax have already partnered to launch LTE services in Uganda and Zambia. Antoine Pamboro has been appointed by Afrimax as Chief Executive Officer of Vodafone Cameroon which will be headquartered in Douala.

Vodafone Partner Markets Chief Executive Diego Massidda
The next stage in our agreement with Afrimax for sub-Saharan Africa brings Cameroon to the Vodafone Partner Market family.  I am delighted that consumers and businesses in Cameroon will now experience Vodafone’s high-speed data services.

Rob Philpott, CFO 
Launching Vodafone Cameroon is an exciting development for Afrimax and another big step towards our ambition of building the leading LTE-focused operator in sub-Saharan Africa.
