MTN: Deal sealed to control Afrihost

Comment on this story

MTN had agreed to acquire a stake of more than 50 percent in internet service provider Afrihost, the cellular network provider said yesterday. Afrihost had reputable brands in the information and communication technology (ICT) industry, MTN said. The deal would add scale to MTN’s online ICT service offering, which was focused on the consumer and small business market. It would “leverage off Afrihost’s strong customer service, value proposition and agility, thereby boosting MTN’s presence in the… corporate, consumer and connected home segments”. – Ayanda Mdluli
