6 Dec 2017

Afghan Wireless Communications Company (AWCC) expanded LTE services to Herat and Baghlan in November, the operator has confirmed. Currently the nation’s sole provider of 4G services, AWCC rolled out LTE to Herat city on 1 November, before launching in Pol-e-Khomri, New Baghlan City and Old Baghlan City later that month. AWCC MD Amin Ramin said of the expansion: ‘The inclusion of Baghlan within AWCC’s 4G LTE network highlights the success of our strategy, which is to expand our company’s 4G LTE service throughout Afghanistan. We look forward to providing our subscribers in Baghlan – and soon, throughout Afghanistan – with the clearest, fastest and most technologically advanced 4G LTE wireless communications network available in the nation.’ As noted by TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, AWCC launched Afghanistan’s first – and to-date only – LTE system in May this year, with coverage of Kabul.
