QCell is happy to announce that QPOWER service is back,” the mobile telephony company said on Wednesday of the cash-power purchase service that was halted abruptly in March.

The QPOWER service allows QCell subscribers to use their mobile phones to recharge their electricity cash-power. It was terminated in March this year shortly after its launch on February 5.

In a text message to its subscribers, QCell said it has double regrets over the setback but failed to give details surrounding the sudden halt to the service.

On June 12, the company “happily” announces in several texts messages sent to clients that the “QPOWER service is back”.

For almost three months, the people living in The Gambia have been compelled to endure the perennial problem of waiting in long queues at cash-power selling points of the National Water and Electricity Company (NAWEC).

Also, they have to manage with the inconvenience of having to sleep in the dark when cash-power runs out in the middle of the night with no selling point in operation.

The QPOWER service is a joint innovative public-private partnership between QCell and NAWEC.

The resumption of the QPOWER services followed QCell boss Muhammed Jah’s presentation of two vehicles as birthday gifts to the Gambian leader, Yahya Jammeh last week.

First 4G

Established in 2009, QCell prides itself for being the country’s first third generation (3G) mobile telephony company.

The Company, the newest of four global systems for mobile communication (GSM) services providers in The Gambia was hailed as “the cheapest” by President Jammeh in 2010.

Amid growing competition, the company claimed it had launched the country’s first 4G network on March 1, 2012.

“BREAKING NEWS! QCell launches The Gambia’s FIRST 4G network. QCell, leaders in Innovation and Quality,” it said in a series of text messages.
