Guinea Bissau is the fifth country that Electroneum has activated for electricity top-ups from within the app. Electricity top-ups were already possible in four African countries – Nigeria, Senegal, the Gambia, and Mali.  

"The electricity top-ups in those five African nations are now provided by a different third-party supplier that offers slightly better pricing for the benefit of our users," said Nigel Pooley, Head of Global Partnerships.
