MTN Rwanda began its operations in 1998, starting out as an exclusive GSM network providing voice and SMS services. The portfolio has exponentially grown to include data, wireless internet, Mobile Money services, Enterprise solutions and other Value Added Services. Technological innovation is vital to MTN’s existence. We are committed to leading the delivery of a bold new digital world and through this, make our customers' lives a whole lot brighter. This mission has positioned us well for further growth into the future.
MTN has the largest market and value share in the increasingly competitive telecommunications industry in Rwanda. It has close to 4 million subscribers and a network coverage of 99%, with a footprint that is covered by 4G, 3.75G and EDGE networks as well as an extensive fiber network. The company continues to invest heavily in infrastructure to expand its coverage and capacity across the country and has invested about 130 Billion Rwf over the last 5 years.
MTN also acknowledges its responsibility towards its stakeholders to sustain long-term mutual value. In this regard, the company has established relationships with governments and community groups for partnerships that are geared towards improving the quality of service it offers to Rwandans through its Corporate Social Responsibility programme, MTN Foundation.
MTN Rwanda has continued to grow from being a generic telecommunication company known for basic telephony to a digital lifestyle-enabling, one-stop solutions shop that supports consumers through every moment and every stage of their life.
