Zimbabwe Mobile Network Expansion

zimbabway.gifMassive unemployment, decades of sporadic civil war and other economic hardships aren’t enough to keep people from wanting to stay connection. Thus Zimbabwe, the landlocked southern African nation once known as Rhodesia, is looking to increase mobile subscriber capacity in the next six months.

Zimbabwe’s Econet is in the process of expanding the nation’s cellular networks, and increase subscriber carrying capacity from the current 800,000 to 1.2 million by February of next year. Econet signed contract with Ericsson and ZTE to supply equipment for the expansion.
