Namibia’s largest telco by subscribers, Telecom Namibia has deployed WiMAX services to the towns of Luderitz and Ondangua, as well as to the rural regions of Omusati and Zambezi, writes Telecompaper. The additional locations bring Telecom Namibia’s number of WiMAX base stations to 87 throughout the country. The company plans to roll out its WiMAX network to other underserved rural locations as part of the Harambee Prosperity Plan, which targets the provision of high speed internet and telecom services throughout these areas of Namibia by 2020. Elsewhere the company has also set up new 3G wireless base stations in Groot Aub, Dordabis, Witvlei, Karasburg and Nkurenkuru to meet growing demand as the company’s subscriber base continues to rise.
