Chief Executive Officer of Orange Sierra Leone, Madam Aminata Kane has told journalists that as the year comes to an end, she wants to take an introspective view of what they have done to improve the company’s services and what has made them stand out in Sierra Leone. “Today we have the widest coverage in the country as we have covered more than 75% of the country. We will continue this venture next year as we intend to cover every part of the country soonest. We have been continuously upgrading our network spending about $96 million,” she disclosed. She explained that at the start of the year they put together their plans for expansion, quality of service and improvement of staff. They met their target because of the 50 new sites they already installed across the country and they are continuously improving the quality of service as well as organizing training courses in and out of the country for their staff members. Madam Kane said Orange can now proudly say they have a strong industrial project that will lead to investing significantly to cover most of the population in the country with telecom services and to bring new services such as data, to business customers and mobile financial services.
