Telmob (Onatel) Prepaid Plan, Internet Package, Offer and More
Onatel, the provider in Burkina Faso, is partially state-owned, but Maroc Telecom owns 51% of it. Its mobile branch was formerly known as Telemob. For “fixed” lines, they use CDMA on the 2000 MHz band, which currently has no prepaid packages available, and therefore, will not be discussed further.
The GSM signals are transmitted on the 900 MHz band for 2G and the 2100 MHz band for 3G. In 2019, 4G/LTE was introduced in 35 locations, including the capital city of Ouagadougou. Onatel lost its market leadership position to Orange in 2018, with a customer share of 46%.
