According to the coutry’s industry regulator, National Telecoms Commission, NATCOM, the company would be monitoring international voice and data traffic between Sierra Leone and overseas destinations using its SIM Box fraud and traffic monitoring systems.

They said they had carried out a thorough evaluation of bids submitted by twelve companies, eleven of them were international.

Subah said they had already deployed successful systems in their home country of Ghana and in Guinea, Conakry where it is estimated that an additional USD$1.5 million of voice traffic was now being billed every month by operators.

“This, in turn, is producing an extra USD$30,000 a month in tax revenues for the government of Guinea,” they said.
