16 July 2021

Cable and Wireless Seychelles has introduced a data package covering areas of the main island Mahe, almost a year after the introduction of its 5G network.

The operator launched its 5G network in July last year in partnership with Huawei, the Chinese multinational telecommunications company.

Public relations executive, Bella Damou, told Seychelles News Agency that "the CWS 5G network has been up and running since then, but the company was waiting for suitable packages to offer to its customers."

The unlimited packages being offered is 5G-100, at a cost of SCR 4,950, excluding Value Added Tax (VAT).

To experience the 5G, users will need a 5G-enabled device and subscribe to the network.
