MTN Zambia launches 3G, Edge services

Wednesday 2 March 2011 | 14:51 CET | News
MTN Zambia has launched mobile internet services based on 3G and Edge technologies, the Times of Zambia reports. The new service builds on its existing offering of GPRS services. CEO Farhad Khan told Reuters in an interview that the operator targets an increase in its subscriber base to 2.5 million this year, from the current 2 million. This should take it to 35-37 percent of the market, versus 20 percent currently. MTN also plans to invest another USD 150 million in the period 2011-13, after USD 200 million spent since its launch in mid-2005.
