It is evident that whenever records are broken, especially a record that will positively affect the lives of people, it's worthwhile to recognise and celebrate the event of the record-breaking. This is so, because it will set a new challenge for the rest to try and break the record and that is what arguably brings about development.

Ever since Qcell Gambia Limited, the country's only 3G (Third Generation) telecommunications network came into existence, it was a unique beginning.
Its management made a pledge to the people of The Gambia to create, build and expand a Gambian owned telecommunication service provider that will provide targeted products to all types of businesses in the country, provide excellent returns on customer investment and bring convenient communication services to the doorsteps of each and every individual in this country.

Six months today, Qcell and the Qcell group has proven to be an unmitigated success. It has introduced its Qcell roaming services with a total number of 550 roaming partners in 208 countries worldwide. The ground has been revolutionarily shifted in Qcell's latest brainchild. The Qcell experience has now truly gone global with Qcell Instant Roaming Sim Card.

With the Qcell Instant Roaming Sim Card, customers can travel far and wide, and wherever they might be, making calls with ease and confidence. Even as the company conducts itself with extreme professionalism, it remains committed to being an excellent corporate citizen with a deep sense of social responsibility. Its brand, the Sunu Buss brand is one that prides itself on expanding the world of its customers with all the conveniences of a modern high-tech mobile service.

The Qcell model is to make communications as clear and easy and cheap as rationally possible; and a reach that extends worldwide.

"The President's Vision 2020, the Silicon Valley project and many other initiatives are all timely responses to the technological challenges of our age. In Qcell, our ambition found an ally in a national imperative, and our double-edged vision transformed into a cutting-edged reality," said Muhammed Jah, CEO and Managing Director of Qcell, at a press conference held at Qcell headquarters yesterday.

As a dynamic telecommunications network, product development and continuous service enhancement are seen as part of the organic growth option being pursued. Unlike its competitors, Qcell's instant roaming service is a piece of innovation that exemplifies convenience and simplicity. It is a gateway to global communications and its reach is limited only by the number of countries in the world.

"Qcell will always innovate; it will never relent or compromise on standards. Part of our motivation as a company is to keep the people of this country abreast of the innovative changes in the world of GSM technology. To that goal, we are firmly committed," Jah said.

Ms. Isatou Jallow, Qcell Roaming Coordinator said "The Qcell Instant Roaming Sim might be our latest addition to our stock of high quality grade services, but our customers can be rest assured that it wouldn't be the last, for here at Qcell staying ahead of technological changes keeps us going on and on".

Other speakers at the press conference included the Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Communications, Alagie Cham, and the Director-General of PURA Alagie Gaye, Baboucarr Jallow, the Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Employment, and CEO of the Kanifing Municipal Council, Ablie Sanyang.
