3G coming to Libya

2 Nov 2006

Libya is set to get its first 3G network, with the country’s second largest cellular operator Libyana rolling out a W-CDMA and HSDPA network covering 14 cities. Libyana has contracted ZTE of China to supply its 3G infrastructure. The new network will have an initial capacity of one million lines. State-owned Libyana had around 700,000 subscribers and a 40% share of the market at the end of June.
