The Cellcom Executive said the decision by Cellcom Management to established shops at all Total service stations across Liberia was one of the major ways of impacting the Liberian economy, as subscribers would not have to go through difficult times in accessing Cellcom products and services including recharge cards, SIM Cards retriever and blocking of Sims among others valuable services for the people of Liberia.

Mr. Weeks further said, the new arrangement between Cellcom and Total buttresses several other programs by both corporate institutions; including 4-G technology and the fiber optic cable, among others. These were part of the Cellcom Management initiatives aimed at enhancing communications and making mobile telecommunications affordable and exciting for Liberians.
