4G Africa is contributing to the reduction of the digital divide

DOUALA, Cameroon, May 27, 2011 -- 
/PRNewswire/ -- 4G Cameroon, the local subsidiary of 4G Africa AG, launched its operation in Cameroon under the brand name "YooMee" only 12 months after it won the necessary permissions to operate a broadband wireless internet access network from Cameroon's telecom regulator ART.
The wireless network covers Douala. Yaounde will be operational during the summer.
YooMee's mission is to provide affordable, reliable and state-of-the-art internet access in Cameroon. YooMee services are designed for the residential and SME markets, as well as governmental entities. The product range includes various types of wireless broadband internet access.
Mr. Dov Bar-Gera, the CEO of 4G Africa said: "We have the pleasure of sharing with you the launch of our services. The Cameroonian market is very attractive for these types of services."
The company offers a variety of services using either a mobile internet USB key, or a stationary desktop device. The service offering starts with CFA 1'000 for monthly 90 minutes and up to an unlimited subscription.
The download speed of YooMee is unusually high for Cameroon – 640 kbit/s, compared to market offerings of 256 kbit/s or lower.
All devices can be bought through authorized dealers.
YooMee's services are based on the fourth generation (4G) mobile broadband technology. The company started with mobile Wimax (16E), upgradable into LTE, should it be necessary.
4G Africa AG, a private Swiss company, was founded in 2009 by a team of telecom entrepreneurs active in emerging countries for the last decade. The team includes the founders of a wireless broadband operator in Europe, which deployed over 200 base stations in Austria, Slovakia and Croatia, and acquired thousands of customers. Under the leadership of this team, this company obtained twice the "Best of Wimax World Awards" (2006, 2007).
The company's main office is Douala. As of today, the company employs directly and indirectly about 50 people in Cameroon. In the coming 24 months, the team will continue in its growth.
4G Africa is committed to closing the digital divide and supporting the economical development by providing an immediately available, speedy and stable Broadband Internet connection.
