Ethio Telecom faces obstacles for restoration of services in Tigray

Wednesday 16 December 2020 | 14:26 CET | News
Telephone connectivity has been restored in Ethiopia's Tigray region but Ethio Telecom has confirmed it "would be days" before the internet is reconnected due to damaged infrastructure, ITWeb reported. Ethio Telecom has also admitted that phone communication in Tigray remained a challenge because all telecom lines to the Mekelle core site were damaged during fighting. Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed said that while communication had been restored in a dozen other cities, electricity remained a problem outside the capital.
