The client uses the CPE in the office or at home; after registering and obtaining the SIM card which is unique, 242 or 243.
Once the SIM card is configured in a specific zones, it would be impossible for it to function elsewhere.

The idea of Blue Hone started in 2018 , finances secured in 2020 and today, with the high speed internet the customer can watch live events, films on Netflix and more.
According to the Blue Home Project Chief, Edmund Zama, Camtel for a long time has been running a fibre product which is very good and sometimes might be costly and sometimes it can take a long time to get to customers.
“The idea behind this Blue project was to fill that gap, a solution that will quickly and instantly allow the customers to come to reality and get connected”, Zama stated.
“We need to (also) remember that the connection is not the ADSL or DSL connection, it is a fibre-like experience. So it was that desire to try to match that experience with a very quick roll out capability and that is what we did”, Zama stressed.
At the official launch, the Deputy General Manager, Daniel Desire Olle said CAMTEL decided to placed their actions on the premise of eccentricity and change management.
CAMTEL Deputy GM underscored the importance of launching Blue Home, ”To be known by the customers, to satisfy them; the first blue product to make them feel at ease with all the products”,
