1 Sep 2009

Econet Wireless Zimbabwe announced last Friday the launch of commercial 3G services, including mobile internet access via handsets and datacards, in tandem with an expanded nationwide launch of GPRS services. The country’s largest wireless operator has recently installed a satellite earth station to provide uplink services for the new W-CDMA-based network. A spokesperson for the company said it now expects ‘90% of internet users to migrate to 3G datacards within a few months.’
