Vodacom Mozambique has become the first operator in the country to launch 4G LTE services. The 4G network has been switched on in the cities of Maputo, Matola, Nampula and Beira, and the municipality of Dondo. Vodacom received a new Unified Telecommunications Licence in July this year, and the telecoms regulator, the National Communications Institute of Mozambique (Instituto Nacional de Comunicacoes de Mocambique, INCM), is due to launch an auction of 4G-capable spectrum in the 800MHz, 1800MHz and 2600MHz bands later this month.
Vodacom chairman Salimo Abdula stated: ‘With this technology, we confirm our position as a company focused on innovation and, above all, to provide an increasingly better experience for our customers. We are taking an important step in improving services at all levels, both individual and corporate.’
