Launched in 1994, the MTN Group is a multinational telecommunications group, operating in 21 countries in Africa, Asia and the Middle East. MTN Benin is a fully owned subsidiary of the MTN Group.

The company has traditionally operated a 2G GSM network over 900 and 1800 MHz, however in September 2011 the government of Benin held a universal licence tender, with MTN being granted a licence. MTN Benin now operates their 3G network over the B1 (2100 MHz) and B8 (900 MHz) bands.
