MTN Zambia has commenced its Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON) fibre solution delivering high speed connectivity to businesses and homes with a target of 1,500 new connections this year.
Company chief executive director Charles Molapisi said MTN had embarked on infrastructure development as it was the platform from which the company would propel its innovative, reliable and scalable solutions.
Mr Molapisi said in the hard-to-reach fibre areas, MTN Zambia had continued its vast and rapid fourth generation (4G) Long-Term Evolution (LTE) roll out which would see 4G connectivity in every province countrywide.
He was speaking during the company’s business cocktail in Lusaka on Wednesday evening.
“We have just concluded our Lusaka to Nakonde and Kapiri Mposhi to Kalumbila underground fibre links
“These fibre links form part of our fibre plan that will see every international border connected to our network and ensure that we develop into a regional fibre hub,” Mr Molapisi said.
He said the company would continue to deliver a rich range of cutting-edge products, adding that MTN Zambia had launched its 4G home internet solution being enjoyed by more than 9,000 people.
Mr Molapisi said through the vast array of digital solutions, MTN would deliver efficiency, automation and customisation to businesses that would ensure increased value.
Economist Oliver Saasa said digital technology had inspired changes as most African businesses were embracing a wide range of communication solutions for voice, data and internet access.
Professor Saasa said productivity had been expanded through the services that mobile companies like MTN Zambia provide.
Huawei Technologies Zambia Company Limited managing director Spawn Fan urged Zambians to embrace the latest technology to propel businesses to new heights.
He said information and communication technology (ICT) cuts costs by improving internal processes and products through faster communication with customers.
“ICT enables enterprises to create business opportunities and combat pressures from competition,” he said.
