A third wireless operator has launched services in Equatorial Guinea.

GECOMSA (Guinea Ecuatorial Comunicaciones Sociedad Anonima) joins Orange Guinee Equatoriale (GETESA), and HiTS Equatorial Guinea, in delivering services in the country.

GECOM is a joint venture between the governments of Equatorial Guinea (51%) and China (49%).

During the launch of GECOMSA, Maria del Mar Bindang Eneme, GECOMSA Director, stated that the telecommunications company's main goal is to improve and guarantee mobile telecommunications as well as Internet services for its subscribers.

"GECOMSA is a great addition to Equatorial Guinea's telecommunications sector as we have experienced some shortcomings," said President Obiang Nguema Mbasogo. "It will expand and improve our communications' reach and take us to a new level of telecommunications."
