Econet completes GPRS installation

1 Jun 2007

Econet Wireless Zimbabwe has completed the installation of a GPRS data platform on its network, which it says will enable it to meet high demand from its customers and roaming visitors to use ‘BlackBerry’ type mobile devices to send and receive e-mails and multimedia attachments. In another development, Econet said it would shortly start trials of a 3G mobile service for a sample group of around 2,000 customers.
