Kezito Makuni, Econet’s Chief Operating Officer, is cited by TechZim as saying: ‘We are increasing our network capacity by upgrading our 3G sites to LTE. We are also expanding our network coverage to areas where we previously had limited or no coverage. A total of 130 sites are being rolled out over a 90-day period as we speak. We are excited that we are able to give our customers an early Christmas present.’
