Benin has five active mobile phone operators of which the largest is MTN with 45% of the mobile subscriber market. In September 2011 the government launched a 3G tender, resulting in MTN Benin being the only telco granted a licence in March 2012. The licence is technology neutral, allowing the use of the technology deemed most appropriate by MTN, and so allowing the integration of other technologies such as 4G, LTE, WIMAX, etc. during the licence period.
