mCel plots USD12m network improvement

26 Jun 2012

Mozambican mobile operator mCel reportedly plans to spend around USD12 million on the installation of new antennas around the country, as part of a wider project to improve its network capacity. IT Web Africa notes that the move will come as a major boost for customers who have previously complained of poor service, weak connections and an excess of dropped calls. Earlier this month it was revealed that the state-owned mobile phone operator made a net profit of EUR31.4 million (USD39.3 million) in 2011, a substantial improvement on the EUR8.6 million generated in FY2010. mCel reported that it invested around MZN1.753 billion (USD63.1 million) in improving its network infrastructure during FY10/11, which included the expansion of its network to 21 new administrative posts throughout the country.
