Celtel Managing Director David Venn has said the company has finished working on its radio system and is ready to implement short message service (SMS) connectivity with Cell Z by October 24. Venn said in an interview last that Celtel has now routedits cabling to the radio equipment at a cost of USD70,000.

He said the company was still waiting for Zamtel's response on having full interconnectivity between the two networks. "We are waiting for Zamtel to do their part and as soon as that happens, SMS connections between Celtel and Cell Z would be possible and there will be no congestions," Venn said. "We are hoping that it could be done before Independence Day."
