AEF’s international radio station RFI has signed an extension of its distribution agreement with Audionow, allowing its African signal in French to be available 24/7 on mobile phones throughout the USA.

By dialling (213) 493-0290, French-speakers can now listen to the African signal of RFI at the price of a normal call without requiring 3G, 4G or Wi-Fi networks. Users can access both the live signal and the latest African news bulletin.

Each month, 450,000 calls of 20 minutes in average are coming from people eager to follow RFI programmes across the USA.
