About Tatem Telecom

TATEM TELECOM, the only licensed CDMA450 Operator in the Democratic Republic of Congo, has immediate plans to extend its network to North America and Europe. This will be accomplished by deploying a SIP ready architecture to allow for the delivery of a true local calling experience for the Congolese in the Diaspora. As part of the greater agenda, TATEM has plans to deliver Mobile Money services through an integrated p2p solution and thereby hold a valuable stake in the 8Bn annual Remittance space.

Why Tatem

The Global ethnic community currently faces numerous inhibitive factors when communicating with their friends and family in their home markets with some of the most obvious challenges being

  • Inhibitive costs of calling home or making international calls.
  • Calling card challenges including non-working pins, continuously busy access numbers, higher than advertised rates and inherent overcharging.
  • Bandwidth limitations with current net based services means low quality service
  • Available services that are punitive with charges and warrantless fees.
  • Poor quality connections
  • No opportunity for affiliation or rewards meaning no savings
