Namibian telecoms provider expands mobile LTE network

Namibian network provider, Paratus, announced the completion of the initial phase of its National Mobile-LTE rollout plan on Wednesday, 7 August 2019.

The company, who has invested in its very own ‘independent’ Mobile-LTE network in Walvisbay and Swakopmundto, is aiming to offer both consumers and businesses an alternative to current providers. By independent, Paratus means the infrastructure is not reliant on any other service provider in the country.

“We have established more network redundancy to international traffic out of the country delivering a reliable service,” says Paratus Namibia Managing Director, Andrew Hall. Paratus has deployed its Fibre network in Walvisbay and Swakopmund and can now also provide WiMAX services to both towns.

After the completion of the Trans Kalahari Fiber (TKF) connected directly to WACS in Swakopmund and extending to Buitepos border to the east of Namibia, Paratus was able to offer customers higher capacity at far more affordable prices.

“Paratus currently offers one of the most affordable rates on data top-ups per gigabyte. With the launch of our Mumwe product, a first of its kind in Namibia, we are now able to allow our customers to tap into one centralised data pool from multiple technologies using either Mobile-LTE, Fixed-LTE, Fibre or a WiMAX connection,” he explains.

“The expansion of our Mobile-LTE network to the coast provides our customers with the option of enjoying the same great service, even when travelling away from home,” he concluded.
