The Vice President of the CEMAC Commission for Telecommunications, Fatima Haman Aki said recently in Douala, the economic capital of the Central African country of Cameroon, the organization is modifying its communication modi operandi.
Free roaming services on mobile electronic communication networks will be available to all CEMAC member countries beginning the second semester of 2020, National Telegraph gathered.
Experts told National Telegraph CEMAC telephone users will pay the same rates for their calls and other phone-related items and will no longer buy new SIM cards in order to use the network or surf the internet when they move to a different country within the zone.
The idea was welcomed by Cameroon’s Minister of Post and Telecommunications. Minette Libom Li Likeng said the idea permits CEMAC mobile telephone users, to be able to use their networks in different countries at affordable rates.

The need to discuss the progress in harmonising the free roaming service and strategies for effective kickoff preoccupied telecommunications representatives from these countries during the event.
