TERMINATION OF THE CONTRACT BETWEEN GOTG AND MGI
Following the preliminary report of the ICT Taskforce recently instituted by His Excellency The President, Cabinet has decided to terminate the contract between the Government of The Gambia and MGI, to exclusively manage the International gateway of the Gambia.
Accordingly, the general public is hereby informed that the management and control of the international gateway has now been transferred to GAMTEL with effect from Friday 7th July 2017. As a result, GAMTEL did a successful takeover and now all international calls to and from the Gambia are through the GAMTEL gateway.
We therefore, count on the service providers and users for their support and encouragement while the process of takeover by GAMTEL is completed and stabilized.
Meanwhile, the international call termination rate has also been reduced by $0.10cents, equivalent to 18% reduction. The Government will continue to work with GAMTEL and operators to further reduce the cost of communication.
