Press release from the Orange network company concerning their network cut-off in Guinea since 23rd. The majority of Guineans were of the perspective that it was a deliberate attempt to shield the incumbent President, Alpha Conde from the post-election violence.
Read below the full release.
Orange informs its friendly customers that it has been attending a cut off since 72 pm,
without notice, of its international routing links at the Guilab level. Until the date of this release, Orange has not received any notification about the reasons for this cut. This situation has caused disturbances in the supply of several of our services to our customers since October 23rd, up to the total unavailability of the supply of
international services (including voice,
roaming, internet) on our network.
International voice and roaming services
were restored yesterday Saturday, October
24 at the beginning of the evening. Orange wants to mark his great amazement
as this cut is only about the links of OrangeGuinea.Orange has also received no notification of any failure to comply with any obligation of its specification or failure to comply with a law of the Republic.
Orange recalls that this situation breaks the
principle of equal treatment for market actors and hopes that appropriate measures will be taken by the supervisory authorities as soon as possible to restore this situation.
Orange Guinea knows how to count on understanding all its customers.
