Overview

Ooredoo Tunisie is the largest mobile carrier operating in Tunisia. The company began operations in 2002, activating its first mobile services in December that year. Originally branded as Tunisiana, the company rebranded to Ooredoo in April 2014 to match the branding of its parent company Ooredoo Group.

Ooredoo Group is a leading international communications company delivering mobile, fixed, broadband internet and corporate managed services tailored to the needs of consumers and businesses across markets in the Middle East, North Africa and Southeast Asia.

Ooredoo Tunisie provides 2G GSM services over 900 MHz, and announced the launch of its 3G UMTS (HSPA+) network in July 2012 over the B1 (2100 MHz) and B8 (900 MHz) bands. 4G LTE was launched in March 2016 over the B3 (1800 MHz) and B20 (800 MHz) bands, upgraded to LTE-A providing 225 Mbps shortly after.

In partnership with Sagemcom, Ooredoo launched the country's first IoT network in December 2017, based on the LoRa standard.
