Afghanistan’s telecoms regulator, the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MoC), has issued tenders for a CDMA based mobile network and a fixed line network. According to the terms of the tenders, the MoC hopes to reconfigure an existing CDMA network which it has installed over the past three years and which has a capacity of 225,000 lines and 85 base stations already installed. The fixed line network, meanwhile, will offer voice and data services in six provinces and will build on an existing network of 101,400 lines. Interested parties have until 29 March to submit bids.
