tn mobile, first introduced as Cell One and then Leo,[1] is a mobile telecommunications company in Namibia providing cellular coverage. It is the second largest mobile operator in Namibia with currently around 300.000 active subscribers.[2] The company is 100% owned by Telecom Namibia, which is in turn wholly owned by the Namibian government.

In 2012, state-owned Telecom Namibia took full control of Leo, when the Communications Regulatory Authority of Namibia (CRAN) approved the takeover. The company was fully incorporated by Telecom Namibia in 2013 as its mobile division and renamed to tn mobile (Telecom Namibia Mobile).

Telecom expanded and upgraded the network to a 4G LTE network with an IMS core enabling Telecom Namibia to offer FMC products a first for the Namibian market and pre-paid 4G LTE devices. Armando Perny is the current Chief Mobile Officer overseeing the GSM business.
