Liberia MTN is a telecommunications company, based in Monrovia, Liberia. The company owns and operates the largest wireless telecommunications network in Liberia, with 48% of the market share in 2011. Founded in 2000 by Beirut-based Investcom, the company became a subsidiary of the South African conglomerate MTN Group following MTN’s acquisition of Investcom in 2006.
In 2009, Lonestar Cell MTN signed a contract with Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd for upgrading the MTN network. Through this network upgrade, which was completed in 2010, MTN strengthened its position in the Liberian market and now offers higher network speed, larger network capacity, better quality of voice calls, and broader geographic and population coverage.
