Huíla to benefit from expanded Africell Angola coverage

07 September 2023

Africell Angola has begun to extend the coverage of its telecom network to the province of Huíla, in the southeast of the country.

While Africell’s network is currently only available in the two towns of Lubango and Humpata, the MNO says that it is working on the infrastructure to establish itself permanently, extend the network and services to other parts of the province.

The launch of Africell Angola’s services in the province of Huíla is part of the operator’s gradual network expansion strategy, which launched its services in the country in April 2022. The company already provides its services in the provinces of Luanda, Kwanza Sul and Benguela. It plans to cover the provinces of Huambo and Namibe by the end of the year while Cabinda and Soyo should receive its signal during the first quarter of 2024. It is aiming for national coverage for 2025.
