Econet Wireless Zimbabwe eyes expansion

02 November 2022

Econet Wireless Zimbabwe plans to upgrade its network infrastructure and roll out new infrastructure in the Matabeleland region in the coming months. This initiative should enable it to improve the quality of services provided to subscribers in the region.

“We are embarking on a network refurbishment program in Bulawayo by modernizing more than 150 sites in Bulawayo with the latest technologies,” said explained Kezito Makuni, COO of Econet. “We will also renovate our backup power systems and expand coverage in urban and rural areas of Matabeleland. Customers should begin to feel the impact of these upgrades early in the new year.”

The investment is part of a program to expand Econet’s network in rural communities, improve 5G coverage and restore vandalized network infrastructure.
