Orange RDC is the second largest mobile network operating in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The company began operations in 2001 as Congo Chine Télécoms (CCT), a joint venture between Chinese ZTE Corporation (51%) and the Congolese state government (49%). In 2011 the company was wholly acquired by French multinational Orange Group and rebranded as Orange RDC in December 2012.
