Telecoms - In Brief


- Bharti Airtel's subsidiary in Malawi has secured a 10-year extension to its mobile operating license, although it has been censured for missing customer care obligations in the past. The Malawi Communications Regulatory Authority (Macra) confirmed the renewal of the license with effect from next February. The 10-year license follows on from the original 15 year license awarded in February 1999 to the company's previous name, Celtel.
