Lonestar Cell MTN is a member of the MTN Group which is a leading international telecommunications company operating in 21 countries in the Middle East, Africa and Europe.
MTN has worked to expand its telecommunications portfolio to become one of the leading operators in some of the most exciting telecom markets. Lonestar Cell MTN has the most expansive telecommunications network in Liberia with subscribers in all fifteen counties. We have invested more in infrastructure and providing access to telecommunications throughout the country than any other operator. Established as the first Mobile Telecommunications Company in Liberia in 2001, Lonestar Cell MTN continues to be the Leader and Pacesetter in the industry in Liberia, spearheading the development of telecommunications.
Lonestar Cell MTN launched its commercial operations in Liberia in July 2001, after having successfully won the auction for the first mobile license. Its license covers the use of both GSM and UMTS radio frequencies for the provision of integrated mobile services. Lonestar Cell MTN became the new brand name of the company in September 2007, following the acquisition of its mother company Investcom LLC by MTN Group.
In October 2008 MTN (a company operated in more than 21 countries) acquired 60% of Lonestar Cell share capital.
In 2009, Lonestar Cell MTN signed a €20 million contract with Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd for upgrading the MTN network. Through this network upgrade, which was completed in 2010, MTN strengthens its position in the Liberian market and offers higher network speeds, larger network capacity, better quality of voice calls, and broader geographic and population coverage.
We take great pride in reaching our over 1.3 million customers in cities, towns and remote villages, connecting them with family, friends and opportunities important to their lives and aspirations.
