Ooredoo Algeria has reached 3.5 million 3G customers within the first year of the launch of the service.

Ooredoo Algeria (formerly known as Nedjma) launched commercial 3G services for millions of customers in ten major cities across the country, with coverage in Algiers, Constantine, Oran, Ouargla, Sétif, Djelfa and exclusively in Béjaia, Chlef, Bouira and Ghardaïa at the end of 2013. The company expanded this service to 25 provinces in the country, while Algeria has 48 provinces.

Dr. Nasser Marafih, group CEO at Ooredoo said: “Across our footprint, Ooredoo’s companies are taking the lead in providing data services that enrich our customers’ lives. Ooredoo Algeria’s success in supporting 3.5 million customers within the first year of its 3G services launch demonstrates once again that Ooredoo holds the leadership position in this area.”

Joseph Ged, CEO of Ooredoo Algeria, said: “Ooredoo rose to meet the challenges and confirmed the tremendous potential of the Algerian market by registering 3.5 million 3G customers in less than a year, exceeding all expectations. This performance is the result of the outstanding efforts of our team.”

“I am particularly proud that we have taken the leadership position in the region, in terms of network and technology, while simplifying the process for accessing 3G services, so that everyone can enjoy the benefits of mobile data,” he added.

In January 2015, Ooredoo’s 3G network will be extended to 32 provinces, covering 80% of Algeria’s population. According to the company, Ooredoo has invested more than $2 billion in its network enhancement.
