On working visit to Yaounde: Equatoguinean state telecoms company, GETESA, CAMTEL share experiences.

Authorities of the Cameroon Telecommunications, CAMTEL, have hosted a business delegation from Equatorial Guinea’s state-run telecommunications company, GETESA.

The delegation from neighbouring Equatorial Guinea, is in Cameroon to share experiences with the country’s telecoms giant, CAMTEL. 

The delegation, led by GETESA’s Director General, Carlos Esono Mikó, was received yesterday, by the General Manager of CAMTEL, Judith Yah Sunday epse Achidi. This was in the presence of senior officials of CAMTEL.

The meeting marked a significant step in fostering collaborative ventures between GETESA and CAMTEL, the leading telecommunications company in the CEMAC Subregion.

CAMTEL General Manager, Judith Yah Sunday, speaking at yesterday’s audience, said the meeting was a continuity of various commitments of the Heads of State of Cameroon and Equatorial Guinea.

She said the visit of the Equatoguineans was aimed at consolidating “in our sector the relations between two brotherly and friendly countries which share the same community space”.

“I will like to recall that these two countries have made efforts and important investments for the development of the telecommunication sector,” she stated, noting that the visit will help in reinforcing partnership between CAMTEL and GETESA “in an environment which is more and more competitive and with a lot of challenges”.


Speaking further during yesterday’s meeting, Judith Yah Sunday disclosed that the Cameroon government has invested “a lot in telecommunications infrastructure”. 

She boasted to her visitors that: “We have five submarine cables that connect Cameroon to the entire world”.

“…we have the possibility of switching from one cable to another whenever we have a problem or difficulty. This is not the case for other African countries of the Central African Subregion. We are doing a lot to utilise the equipment that government has put at our disposal,” she continued.


Enter GETESA boss

Taking the cue during the session, the Director General of GETESA, Carlos Esono Mikó, said Cameroon and Equatorial Guinea share a lot in common.

He said his delegation was in Cameroon to share experiences with CAMTEL and learn from each other.

We share a lot in common. We are both state companies. It is time for us to engage in cooperation. As neighbors, we have so many things to learn from each other. So, it is important for us to sit together and share experiences,” the Equatoguinean authority explained.

The GETESA boss then added that: “I think we have achieved our objectives of coming to Cameroon. We came here to share experiences”. 

GETESA, it should be said, is the public telecommunications company of Equatorial Guinea. 

It has been facilitating connectivity and communications since 1987. It provides phone, Internet and mobile services. 

In the energy sector, GETESA supports businesses through its national network coverage and Internet provision

GETESA’s main objective is to be the best operator in Equatorial Guinea and to become a Central African platform where engineers are trained, new business models are deployed and where start-ups and initiatives are generated. 

As the leading operator in Equatorial Guinea, GETESA hopes to manage the growth of companies from Equatorial Guinea and focus on the development of the Central African market.

Because of its fast mobile network, GETESA is a leader in network coverage, customer service and technology. 

The main milestone the company has had is the extension of 3G and 4G coverages to all cities in Equatorial Guinea and the increase in broadband coverage.

As the largest operator in Equatorial Guinea, their operations extend to all sectors, including the oil and gas sectors. 

The company offers integrated solutions to corporations for global communication for both mobile and fixed applications.

 These services are most effective within the energy sector.
