Local newspaper THISDAY quotes Globacom’s chief operating officer Mohamed Jameel as saying that the network improvement project forms part of a plan to enhance the experience of millions of its mobile customers. He added that the four-month project will involve the upgrade and overhaul of infrastructure across the country, as well as expansion and densification projects that will enable the network to better cater for its existing and potential subscribers.
