Company Overview

Comores Telecom, under the Huri brand, is the incumbent mobile services provider operating in Comoros. Comores Telecom, often shortened to ComTel, is a partially state owned enterprise traditionally the only provider of fixed and mobile services on the country's islands (Grande Comore, Anjounan, and Mohéeil). In 2013 the government of Comoros divested a 51% stake in the company as part of its privatisation initiatives.

The company launched mobile services in 2003 in partnership with Alcatel when it activated 2G GSM services over the 900 MHz band. 3G UMTS services were later launched in 2013 over the B8 (900 MHz) band.
