3 Sep 2019

The government of Mozambique says that telecoms services are now available to 85% of the population, up from 65% in 2014. A report from Weetracker cites Pedro Ingles, Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Transport and Communications (MTC), as saying that the authorities are supporting operators to reach 100% coverage with their 4G networks, with capital being injected via the Universal Access Fund (Fundo do Servico de Acesso Universal, FSAU). According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, Mozambique is home to three wireless operators – Vodacom, TMCEL and Movitel – while the fixed line sector is dominated by TMCEL.
