MTN Swaziland developing 3G network

14 Sep 2010

MTN Swaziland is reported to be in a testing phase of developing a commercial 3G mobile network following a month-long pilot of four UMTS base stations. The South African-owned cellco was granted a temporary 3G licence to cover several events including the Common Market for Eastern & Southern Africa (COMESA) summit in the country in late August. The permit was valid from 16 August to 15 September, with 3G services offered to post-paid MTN customers only. MTN Swaziland’s existing commercial network is equipped with 2.5G EDGE technology, which it has deployed in the Mbabane Manzini corridor and other selected areas around the country.
