Once expired, and unless the number used has been taken over by a new subscriber, the original number may be restored by completing the relevant form at one of Telma's main sales offices.

History and key events

Telma's history dates back to 1896 when the first phone line was installed in Antananarivo.

1904, the first phone boxes were made available in the capital.

It was however not until 1971 that the first international call was made.

With advent of the digital revolution in 1995 the internet arrived in Madagascar, initially limited to a slow satellite connection.

1996, Telma provided the infrastructure for the launch of Orange and in 1997 for Airtel.

2000, a VSAT system was installed improving connectivity.

2004, Telma was privatised.

2005, ADSL was launched and fixed wireless (CDMA) soon followed.

2006, Fiber Optic lines were installed in the capital, and 'Telma Mobile' was launched. In 2008 the National Backbone in Fiber Optics was etablished. The same year, Telma reached one million subscribers!

Thereafter in 2008, mobile internet became available and in 2009 the country's first 3G+ network was introduced, paving the way for the oncoming mobile internet revolution.

2010, Telma connected with EASSy, the Eastern Africa Submarine Cable System, now providing the country with high-speed access via the African continent.

In the same year, Telma launched MVola, the country's first mobile banking service in Madagascar. Thereafter, Telma's highly popular low-cost package M'Ora was launched.

2011, the MADAREN network connected high schools and universities directly with the National Backbone.

In the same year, MVola and Western Union partnered to make international bank transfers possible via mobile phones.

Since 2012 Telma extended their mobile payment system to allow for water and electricity bills to be paid by the local population.

2013, the Northern Backbone was launched with Fiber Optic cables. The first low cost US$ 100 tablet and 'Telma Star' smartphone were introduced.

2015, Telma lanched the Southern Backbone as well as The Nosy Be Backbone with fiber optic lines. In the same year, 4G mobile internet was made available nationwide.

2016, National Fiber Optic cables were upgraded. Launch of first 4G smartphone priced at $US 70. Launch of Telma in Comores.

2017, Payment of taxes made possible via MVola. Telma Sekolo (school) project begins construction of 50 schools across Madagascar.
