Sakala said the entrance of another operator will force the existing companies to improve their services. He said the move to allow for a fourth operator was necessitated by the high cost of communication services in the country. According to the government, the fourth mobile phone service operator could be in place over the next six-12 months and that the country could still have the capacity for a fifth operator.
