The Algerian telephony operator Djezzy, 51% owned by the National Investment Fund (FNI), registered an increase of one million subscribers in 2018, now with 15.6 million subscriptions, an increase of 4.7%.
This boost, it is said, also resulted in an increase in the company’s 49% -owned turnover by the Russian-Norwegian telecom group Veon. In the third quarter of the year, the semi-public telephone operator posted sequential growth of 5.6% (around 180 million euros). For its part, data revenue grew by 71.8% in one year thanks to the growing use of the mobile Internet, according to Matthieu Galvani, the general manager.
The former Orascom Telecom Algeria is a mobile operator created on July 11, 2001, which opened its network in February 2002.
