Congolese cellco Africell has extended its mobile network coverage to three new provinces in the south-east of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC): North Kivu, South Kivu and Tanganyika. According to the operator, the expansion work took 18 months, and included the deployment of 100 cell sites and the development of a data centre in Goma (North Kivu).

Commenting on the expansion, Africell DRC Regional Director Jacques Gergi was quoted as saying: ‘The south-east of DRC has enormous economic potential. However, when it comes to digital connectivity, it hasn’t always received enough investment. The regional launch of Africell is an important step because it will give affordable digital tools to potentially millions more Congolese people, unlocking economic growth and supporting jobs, entrepreneurship, education and more’.
