Econet Wireless is now ready to roll out its 3G network following the completion of installation of the equipment, CEO Mr Douglas Mboweni has said. "We are now on the testing phase," the Econet boss said in an interview. The 3G network was expected to be in place by March 31 this year, but its rollout was postponed following delays in the procurement and installation of the equipment.
