State telecoms operator Mozambique Telecom (Tmcel) will launch 4G services by the end of November of this year and upgrade its national network with support from China, it says in a statement.
“By the end of November this year, Tmcel will introduce 4G technology as part of its project to modernise and upgrade its entire transmission network,” the company has announced.
After the introduction of 4G in the capital and surrounding areas, “the second phase of the project will be launched with a view to its expansion to the entire national territory, financing for which has already been secured from the Chinese government,” a statement citing Minister of Transport and Communications Carlos Mesquita reveals.
The other two Mozambican mobile operators – Vodacom and Movitel – already offer 4G coverage.
Tmcel’s network upgrade “includes equipment which will contribute to improving quality and coverage as well as increasing speed,” the company says.
Initially, 4G coverage will be available only in Maputo and Matola metropolitan areas, as well as in Marracuene district.Source: Lusa
