Cameroon: Two mobile telecom giants to appear in court

The Cameroon Consumer League has accused two mobile telephone companies of false advertising and fraud on the 4G services. Both the South African and the French telecom giants have been dragged to court. In its first complaint, the Cameroon Consumer League noted that the South Africans and the French, engaged since December 16, 2015 to false advertising on the 4G network with the key promise to make the fastest connection on the Internet. It thus led consumers to shell out more money to access this alleged new service. 

The Telecommunications Regulatory Agency in Cameroon recently revealed that 4G is not yet effective because some important parameters of the specification books of these mobile operators are being developed. However, it refrained from punishing operators for false advertising vis-à-vis Cameroonian scam consumers. Correspondingly, the Cameroon Consumer League is demanding that both companies perform a damage control policy and pay compensation to customers and the payment of damages should be determined by the law. The trial court in Yaoundé, may decide the case on January 28, 2016.
