Orange Madagascar is the leading integrated telecoms operator in Madagascar. It has a subscriber base of 2 million and an estimated market share of 30%. It provides cellular and data services using 2.5, 3 and 4G networks to its clients using a modern infrastructure including fibre optics thereby providing Madagascar with first class connectivity to the outside world. The company is also a provider of mobile banking services via its Orange Money service.
As compared to most of its peers in Sub-Saharan Africa, the penetration rate of telecoms in Madagascar is still extremely low thereby presenting an evident growth opportunity to the company whether access to basic low-cost telephony in currently unserved parts of the country or high value-added data services to its corporate clients.
