BICS to provide Swazi Mobile with voice, data roaming

7 Nov 2017

Global communications enabler BICS has agreed to provide its complete range of voice and data roaming services to Swaziland’s second mobile network operator (MNO) Swazi Mobile. The full roaming platform will allow Swazi Mobile’s end-users to benefit from international voice and data services, SMS messaging, signalling, IPX and data clearing services. Wandile Mtshali, the CEO at Swazi Mobile, said: ‘The immediate access to over 800 of BICS’ partners will give our customers the ability to roam like never before, and BICS’ PoP in Johannesburg will provide us with a competitive differentiator through service quality.’

TeleGeography notes that Swazi Mobile launched 2G/3G/4G mobile services in the country in July 2017. The new operator advertised services in 28 towns at launch, with 80% of the population covered by 1 October 2017.
