Vodacom Mozambique partners with Huawei to upgrade network

22 November 2011 |


Vodacom Mozambique (VM) has partnered with Huawei in a $16 million deal to expand and modernise the VM network over the next three to four years.

By the end of the first year Huawei is expected to deploy 100 new 2G base receiver stations and 200 3G cell towers.

VM chairman, Jose Dos Santos, described the partnership as offering the best quality network. Under the plan the entire VM network will be replaced, doubling network capacity and potentially doubling the number of calls made through the network. Santos also explained that the partnership would allow users of the internet service to enjoy greater speed in the transmission of data and multimedia services in real time.

Upon the conclusion of the programme Vodacom will have coverage in every district of Mozambique with 400 2G base receiver stations.
