According to MTN Rwanda CEO Ebenezer Asante, speaking at a press conference at MTN’s headquarters in Nyarutarama, expanding the cellco’s 3G network remains a priority, and the company will continue to upgrade its infrastructure throughout 2014 in order to provide the most expansive 2G and 3G coverage in the country.
