Tunisia: Ooredoo-Nokia Partnership Promises Mobile Network Upgrades

by | Mar 2, 2023 | Economic, Social, Tunisia


This week, Nokia and Ooredoo announced a multi-year agreement to upgrade Ooredoo’s mobile service in Algeria and Tunisia. The enhancements will include coverage of new sites in both countries, but also will include upgrades to existing infrastructure in dense urban areas and preparations for 5G adoption in the future. In Tunisia specifically, the agreement includes plans to improve Ooredoo’s Internet Protocol (IP) network and the modernization of the fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network. These improvements will reportedly result in more reliable mobile internet and higher mobile data speeds.


As Tunisia’s internet speeds and reliability continue to lag behind a majority of countries, the announced network upgrades are a promising move toward competitiveness. Entrepreneurs and globally oriented firms in Tunisia require reliable connectivity to offer their services and increased performance by a major provider could help push the market toward incremental improvement.
