Airtel Networks Zambia has announced that they have rolled out 138 sites across 10 provinces in an effort to increase its network accessibility. Some of these districts where the sites are include Chibombo, Chipangali, Lufwanyama, Solwezi, among many others.
We are proud of providing the highest number of 4G sites in Zambia and these additional 138 sites will further augment our 4G konse. This along with our new spectrum in 800 MHz has provided customers with the best in class indoor experience as well as further reach in rural areas.
We now have more than 1,600 4G sites across the country. Additionally, the superior indoor experience and higher rural reach have been made possible after Airtel won an additional 10 MHz through competitive bidding during early 2022, making it a total of 20 Mhz in 800 MHz.
As the new year starts, we reaffirm our commitment to providing a superior network to the people that will enable further digitization and financial inclusion. This is in line with the 8th National Development Plan, adding to the much sought-after technology to support digital transformation and innovation as key enablers to economic growth.Mr Manu Sood, Managing Director, DTH Business – airtel
