Celtel to upgrade networks

7 Nov 2005

Pan-African operator Celtel has signed a contract with Ericsson to upgrade its mobile networks in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania. The development has already begun in Uganda and Tanzania and is set to start in Kenya next month. Celtel currently has a customer base of around eight million in the east African region, and it hopes that the upgrade will enable it to double its customer base without experiencing any congestion problems.
