Angolan operators to receive multi-service licences

Sunday 4 October 2015 | 20:42 CET | News
Angola's Minister of Telecommunications and Information Technologies, Jose Carvalho da Rocha, announced that the three major telephone operators will soon receive multi-service licences. They will enable Unitel, Movicel and Angola Telecom to provide fixed, mobile and pay-TV services, reports Angop. He said that the operators will need frequencies yielded by the digital dividend, after the switchover of TV and radio from analogue to digital transmission. The frequencies vacated will mostly be used by mobile operators to provide broadband services.
