Our history

We were established in South Africa at the dawn of democracy in 1994 as a leader in transformation. Since then, we have grown by investing in sophisticated communication infrastructure, developing new technologies and by harnessing the talent of our diverse people to now offer services to communities across Africa.


Our strategic intent

Ambition 2025: Leading digital solutions for Africa’s progress, harnessing the power of MTN – our leading brand, footprint, connectivity infrastructure and technology platforms.
Our strategy is anchored in building the largest and most valuable platform business with a clear focus on Africa. This rests on a scale connectivity and infrastructure business – mobile and fixed access networks in the consumer, enterprise and wholesale segments. We are accelerating implementation through partnerships. Our strategy is supported and funded through enhanced cost and capex efficiencies. It is focused on four strategic priorities and five vital enablers.

Our strategic priorities

Build the largest and most valuable platforms
