Mauritius Telecom is the leading provider of an extensive range of ICT services and solutions in Mauritius for both residential customers and businesses, including fixed, mobile, internet, TV, mobile money, ICT and digital services.
The Company was incorporated in 1988 as Mauritius Telecommunication Services and in 1992, after merging with Overseas Telecommunications Services (previously Cable & Wireless), it was renamed Mauritius Telecom. In 2000, Mauritius Telecom entered into a strategic partnership with France Telecom (now Orange S.A.), which acquired 40% of its shares in the context of the impending liberalisation of the country’s telecommunications sector.
Mauritius Telecom has played a pivotal role in the socio-economic development of Mauritius, by setting up a telecommunications infrastructure connecting Mauritius to the world through sustained investment in international bandwidth and capacity, and through the launch of innovative services to meet its customers’ evolving needs. Through its numerous initiatives, Mauritius Telecom has paved the way for the growth of the ICT industry, which has become a major pillar of the Mauritian economy. By the end of 2017, the Company had completed island-wide fibre deployment, thereby enabling Mauritian citizens and businesses to benefit from ultra-high-speed broadband internet.
Innovation is embedded in the Company’s DNA.
Several game-changing services and products have been introduced: my.t money, a service that has revolutionised the payments industry, was launched in 2019, followed by the first truly unlimited prepay and postpay data packages.
In 2021, MT once again led Mauritius' digital evolution, bringing in a new era of connectivity on
mobile and fibre through the launch of the first my.t 5G Experience Zones and the first 1Gbps
fibre internet offer in Mauritius.
Another landmark occurred in 2022 when my.t mobile reached one million customers.
