Who is behind Maki?

Maki is a project developed by Bolloré telecom, a global mobile broadband operator with operations in France and Western Africa.

We created Maki because we believe innovation is not only a driver in our industry, it is a vital necessity.

We created Maki because we want to leverage the web as a revenue driver.

We created Maki because we want the internet experience to be simple for us and for our customers.

We created Maki because it made sense for our P&L.

We created Maki because who could better understand the needs of 3.5 GHz spectrum owners than an operator itself?

Bolloré telecom is a subsidiary of the Bolloré Group.

Founded in 1822, the Bolloré Group is one of the 500 leading international groups. From its historic beginnings in thin papers, the Group has set about diversifying into areas where it can be a front-runner. This diversification of activities enables it to spread its risks better.

It is now a player in plastic films for capacitors and packaging, electric batteries, thin papers, transportation and international logistics, fuel ditribution and dedicated terminals and systems.

For several years, the group has been investing in the communication and media sector. The Group contributed to the launch of DVB-T in France with the development of Direct 8, a national public television network, first aired in March 2005.

The Group is now developing its business in the wireless telecommunications world, with Wifirst, the leading French wifi operators in terms of traffic and with Bolloré telecom, the leading 3.5 GHz player in France.
