The Gambian Network

The very first Africell operation. Launched in 2001, Africell The Gambia aimed at making a difference not only through the Communication sector but also in the Community.

Being second to enter the market provided a unique incentive to adopt a radically different approach by offering the best customer care and the most advanced call center in The Gambia. We continuously strive to deliver superior promotions at the most competitive prices, appealing to all segments of Gambian society.

Africell has firmly established its presence in the Gambian social landscape through extensive social investments. We have supported the younger generation by sponsoring football teams and aiding educational institutions. We have also engaged with remote farmers through our “back to the land” promotions and even pioneered our own beauty pageant, enabling Gambians to select their own beauty ambassador to represent their youth and culture.

Our transparency and dedication to The Gambia propelled us to market leadership in July 2006 in terms of subscribers. By April 2008, we had reached the 500,000 subscriber mark, maintaining a market-leading position with over 63% market share. Currently, we proudly serve over 2,000,000 loyal subscribers, reinforcing our market leadership.

Throughout our operational journey, we have prioritized the best interests of Gambians at the core of our business, offering state-of-the-art customer service and the latest products and services at competitive prices.

In January 2018, Africell launched the 4G/LTE network services, initially covering the Greater Banjul area, with plans to extend coverage across The Gambia, offering download and upload speeds of up to 150 Mbit/s.

In September 2019, Africell introduced the 4G+ network, doubling the download speed from 150 to 300 Mbit/s.

In 2024, Africell achieved a significant milestone by reaching 2 million subscribers, reaffirming our leadership in the market. That same year, we launched our 5G network in five strategic locations: Africell Head Office, Kairaba Avenue, Banjul, Senegambia, and Brusubi. This new 5G network delivers unprecedented speeds of up to 1 Tbit/s, ensuring that Africell remains at the forefront of technological advancement in The Gambia.

Our unwavering commitment to innovation and customer satisfaction guarantees that our subscribers always have access to the most advanced mobile services available.
