Airtel is set to launch a nationwide LTE network in the Seychelles.

The Indian mobile operator has partnered with Ericsson to deliver the 800MHz network, which will meet growing demand for mobile broadband services.

It is expected to provide 4G services to 10,000 subscribers across the archipelago in the first phase of its launch, also marking the mobile operator’s first commercial LTE network in Africa.

"We are committed to enriching the lives of our subscribers, and this means putting the customer experience at the heart of everything we do,” said Amadou Dina, country manager, Airtel Seychelles.

“LTE transforms the mobile-broadband user experience, providing superior data speeds needed for services such as internet TV, mobile video-blogging, online video games and the mobile office-environment. As a leading telecom service provider, this is a service we are very proud to offer our customers and Ericsson is our partner in delivering this."
