7 Aug 2020

Zimbabwe’s state-owned fixed line incumbent TelOne has commissioned a new fibre-optic link between Makuti and Chirundu in the north of the country. The new cable was deployed at a cost of USD1.5 million, New Zimbabwe reports, improving both national connectivity and cross-border links to neighbouring Zambia. ICT, Posts and Courier Services minister, Jenfan Muswere, said: ‘This project is part of the government’s efforts to upgrade and modernise communications infrastructure, thereby reducing the connectivity costs of both data broadband and voice. The government will be able to provide citizens with affordable internet and create business opportunities along the way.’
