Ericsson expands Econet’s network further

9 Jun 2010

Swedish technology provider Ericsson has begun a new phase of a network expansion project for Econet Wireless Zimbabwe to allow the cellco to increase its capacity to approximately five million users by August 2010, as well as ensuring that central Harare has full 3G coverage by the end of this month. The work forms part of a three-year frame agreement that was signed last year, with Ericsson responsible for expansion of the core and access 2G and 3G networks as well as business support system delivery. Furthermore, Ericsson is proving transport and transmission technologies and services such as system integration and business consultancy.
