Zimbabwe: MNOs Agree to Share Infrastructure
14 June 2019
After years of back and forth negotiations, Zimbabwe's biggest mobile network giants, Econet and NetOne finally agreed on an infrastructure sharing deal.
Through a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) the two parties committed to sharing infrastructure in a collective effort to bring connectivity and ICT services to all Zimbabweans.
Described by Econet CEO Mr Douglas Mboweni as a "giant step" and by NetOne CEO Mr Lazarus Muchenje as a "watershed agreement", the infrastructure sharing deal is a welcome development that has been long coming.
