Airtel Rwanda announces HSPA+ switch-on

5 Jul 2012

The recently launched Rwandan mobile operator Airtel has announced the launch of its new high speed HSPA+ platform, which will offer subscribers mobile data download speeds of up to 21Mbps. The equipment for the deployment was supplied by Ericsson. Airtel launched its first 2G networks in Rwanda in March this year and had promised that its mobile broadband service would follow shortly. Initially only available in the capital Kigali, the HSPA+ service will be deployed in other cities in the coming weeks. The Indian-owned cellco is competing with Rwanda’s two established players, MTN and Millicom/Tigo.
