Namibia’s Paratus Telecom and its subsidiary Canocopy has introduced a new look Long-Term Evolution (LTE) tower at one of Windhoek's oldest landmarks, the Old Power Station.  In April 2016 Paratus Telecom launched its 4G mobile data service on 33 base station sites in Windhoek. Paratus managing director John D'Alton said its teams spent hours contemplating the upgrade options, not only from the structural point of view but also the visual side, to retain the tower as a historic landmark. 

Andrew Hall, operations executive at Paratus, said when the firm initially started negotiating the site with the current owner early in 2015, it knew that the tower required a lot of attention. Currently, the Old Power Station is home to several small businesses and entrepreneurs.
