“Under the project, the operator plans to restructure the country into 11 telecommunication infrastructure zones, from the 16 previously, limiting the number of vendors in each zone to just one,” the companies reported.
“The zones will be based on demography, customer base and geographic location. Addis Ababa will occupy just one circle, meaning that either ZTE or Huawei will act as the sole vendor there,” said Ethio Telecom.
If agreed, it should help continue to see boosting in the country’s telecom services. And with more and more Ethiopians entering the market, infrastructure is becoming a much needed push.
