Apart from this, the two companies will together design new products and services targeting a better quality of life for their respective customers. This long-term collaboration will allow both companies to conceive upcoming technological solutions to strengthen the digital interest and impact within the Algerian market.
Ooredoo also aspires to contribute directly to the evolution of the market needs, mutation, and therefore better meet its customers’ expectations.
