YooMee Côte d’Ivoire, based in Abidjan, is launching its LTE services to individuals and businesses. These services are based on the latest global technology TD-LTE, which ensures a new, faster Internet experience with more stability and better reliability for Ivorian users. With these advantages, its great success in Cameroon and an unrivaled quality of service, YooMee anticipates strong growth in the number of Internet users and subscribers for Internet access in Côte d’Ivoire.
YooMee Côte d’Ivoire Technology
LTE (Long Term Evolution) is the latest wireless broadband Internet technology used worldwide, by the leading operators in the United States, China, Japan, Europe and the Middle East, etc. The LTE allows Internet communication with data transmission speeds beyond 10 Mbit/s. YooMee relied on the proven expertise of Alcatel-Lucent, a global provider of LTE equipment.
LTE technology frees the mind of those who want to stay connected while traveling. Whether browsing the Internet, watching videos or listening to live-stream music, LTE provides a great connection speed regardless of where the user is located; at home, in the office, or outdoors.
As stated by Mr. Dov Bar-Gera, CEO of YooMee Africa Ltd., “I am very proud that the authorities of Côte d’Ivoire have issued to YooMee the necessary permissions and spectrum to build the first LTE network in the country. With this network, West Africa is leapfrogging into a new era of the Internet.”
