BEE set to launch internet service operations in Tunisia in Q1 2019

BEE, a joint venture formed by Tunisian and foreign investors, will launch internet services in Tunisia in the first quarter of 2019, reports Ecofin.

BEE will initially offer ADSL and VDSL services before expanding to others such as FTTH, IPTV and telephony, the new company’s operations manager Karim Labidi said.

He said the project is administratively and technically ready for launch. A network of sales points is being installed in the country to be as close to clients as possible. BEE is counting on proximity and competitive prices to gain a spot in the competitive market quickly.

According to the latest statistics from the national telecommunications agency, Tunisia’s internet market is currently shared by five private access providers and some public operators. The market had 9.80 million subscribers and the fixed line segment was dominated by Tunisie Telecom, while the mobile sector was dominated by Orange Tunisie.
