Until 2010 two operators have shared the Tunisian telecommunications market: the incumbent operator Tunisie Telecom and Tunisiana (Orascom). The penetration rate is 82% and a high ARPU with 95% of pre-paid subscribers. In August 2010, Orange acquired the first 3G license with one year of exclusivity. Orange Tunisie now sells mobile, fixed-line and Internet telecommunications services and is the country’s first convergent operator.
To make the most of its year of 3G exclusivity, Orange built its Tunisian network rapidly from the ground up. In only 6 months, well within the time allowed, it satisfied the coverage conditions of its license. A daunting process that required : network rollout, information system, structure, recruitment, supplier base, distribution network, market familiarization and analysis of consumer expectations.
