“We have grown rapidly as a company and in order to maintain the momentum and build on it we have chosen Ericsson as a partner to assist us in improving our services,” said Abdourahman Mohamed Hassan, CEO of DT. “We are proud to be the first to bring 3G connectivity and mobile broadband services to the country and with the help of Ericsson’s technology and capabilities we can ensure that this will significantly enhance the experience for our customers.”

Djibouti Telecom, which launched in 1999, offers fixed, wireless services (GSM, CDMA), corporate and wholesale IP/DATA to ADSL networks.
