No new licences on offer in Zimbabwe

9 May 2012

The Postal and Telecommunications Regulatory Authority of Zimbabwe (POTRAZ) has revealed that it has no plans to issue new fixed line or mobile telephony licences, despite interest from a number of foreign firms, Telecompaper reports. The regulator says the government would have to alter legislation to permit new players to enter the market, which is currently served by one fixed operator – TelOne – and three cellular providers – Econet Wireless, Telecel and NetOne.
