Zamtel has commissioned three new communication towers in Chama and Chasefu Districts. The launch ceremonies were graced by Transport and Communications Minister Mutotye Kafwaya who commended Zamtel for taking network coverage to areas other players have neglected.
The three sites commissioned are Chimbilima in Chama District in Muchinga Province and Mampula and Egichicken in Chasefu District in Eastern Province.
Eastern province has so far received 76 new communication towers meant the communication gap experienced in rural area.
Mr. Kafwaya said the advent of the Covid pandemic has demonstrated the huge importance of reliable communication services.
And Zamtel Chief Executive Officer Sydney Mupeta said the project has already repositioned Zamtel as the network with the largest footprint in the nation.
“We are proud to partner with the Government to ensure that every citizen, regardless of their geographical location, has access to reliable communication services,” Mr Mupeta said.
He announced that Zamtel will in the next few weeks be announcing new digital products and services that will respond to the digital needs of customers.
