Speaking to NewsDay on the sidelines of TelOne’s litter bins handover and clean-up campaign on Friday in Bulawayo, the company’s managing director Chipo Mtasa revealed that they are still to receive equipment that they will use in the network modernisation project.
Mtasa said that the equipment was already manufactured and they were waiting for China to deploy it,
We have finished the paperwork and we have the first phase of the equipment, which has now been manufactured in China. We are hoping that it can be deployed before December into Zimbabwe and the first sites that will be benefiting is Harare and Bulawayo.
The TelOne boss added that with the $98m project they would be able to integrate voices, broadband and data services all from the same platform.
