“We have a great 4G LTE network, which is now in ten cities outside of Monrovia, so we are rolling out these devices at lowered prices so that more Liberians can enjoy the benefits of Internet on this high speed network,” said Muthama.

The device fair is being held at the Orange store in Sinkor, Monrovia to ensure fast service for customers wanting to purchase devices.  

Mr. Mathama elaborated that while large numbers of customers were coming in everyday to purchase smartphones, the company had multiple sales people to ensure that customers could get in and out with very little wait or delay.
