Thursday 31 January 2019 | 14:59 CET | News
Edotco Pakistan plans to expand and upgrade its network infrastructure to meet the projected 5-fold increase in mobile data usage on the local market. According to Edotco, the Pakistani telecommunications industry will need over 30,000 new tower sites by 2022, double the amount it has now. The new sites will be coverage sites to extend connectivity to rural and hard to reach areas, as well as capacity sites, to meet the increasing data usage growth, as more users transition from 3G to 4G and beyond.
