5 Aug 2015

Mozambican telecoms regulator the Instituto Nacional das Comunicacoes de Mocambique (INCM) has revealed plans to investigate the use of so-called ‘white space’ spectrum for rural broadband use. According to a statement from the watchdog, the pilot project – named TV-White Spaces (TVWS) – will be carried out in association with local broadband provider Internet Solutions (IS) alongside the Fundo do Servico de Acesso Universal (FSAU), the International Centre of Theoretical Physicas (ICTP) and the Centro de Informatica da Universidade Eduardo Mondlane (CIUEM). The tests will take place in Boane, a municipality situated in the Maputo province, and utilise unused spectrum in the 470MHz to 790MHz range.
