Econet extends LTE internet from modems to mobile devices


Econet Wireless Zimbabwe has rolled out LTE internet service for mobile phones in Zimbabwe, ITWeb reported. In 2013, Econet became the seventh mobile operator in Africa to offer LTE connectivity although it was only restricted to accessibility through modems.

The LTE service has until now been available at all of Zimbabwe's airports and the CBDs of Harare and Bulawayo as well as in the resort town of Victoria Falls. Expansion of the service to mobile phones marks a new development for the company as it enhances its revenues from the data segment.
