Tunisia: 5G Network Launch Expected in Late-2024

by | Mar 20, 2024 | Economic, Social, Tunisia


On 18 March 2024, the Minister of Communication Technologies, Nizar Ben Neji, announced plans to roll out 5G services on Tunisia’s mobile networks by the end of 2024. 

The announcement included a roadmap that plans for spectrum auctioning during summer 2024, the awarding of licenses to operators in September, and the commencement of 5G service marketing in November.  

Tunisia’s primary telecom providers, Ooredoo, Orange, and Tunisie Telecom, will likely be competing for licenses. Ooredoo announced a partnership with Huawei to upgrade its infrastructure. 


Investments in Tunisia’s telecommunications infrastructure are foundational steps toward attracting various forms of investment that will be essential for economic growth.  

Whether for optimizing the service environment for tourists, or creating reliable connectivity for businesses, persistent, high-quality internet service is essential for Tunisia. 

Challenges remain for equitable distribution of service, with more reliable mobile network coverage concentrated in large urban centers. However, 5G adoption will likely improve overall service for Tunisians, which have high rates of technology adoption, social network, and smart phone use.
