Movitel gets unified licence in Mozambique

29 Jul 2019

Mozambique’s Communications Regulatory Authority (Autoridade Reguladora das Comunicacoes, ARECOM, also known as INCM) has granted a unified telecoms licence to Movitel, the smallest of the country’s three cellcos. The operator is now entitled to provide telecommunications services, ‘regardless of the supporting technology, without prejudice to the need to obtain spectrum or numbering frequencies and other applicable rules,’ ARECOM says. Movitel recently launched its first 4G networks covering parts of the capital city Maputo. Rival operators Vodacom and TMCEL were awarded unified licences in July 2018 and May 2019, respectively.
