Potraz to set up 250 base stations
Published: 11 August 2017
The Postal and Telecommunications Regulatory Authority of Zimbabwe will build 250 base stations under a multi-operator radio network extension project with capacity for 2 million users.

Potraz will engage contractors to design, supply, install and commission the multi operator radio access network (MORAN) comprising both passive infrastructure and active equipment.

The MORAN will be shared by three operators who will initially offer 2G and 3G services. The authority plans to implement the project as a build and transfer public private partnership.

The project seeks to cover existing gaps after a network coverage study conducted by Potraz in 2016 established that 314 wards, hosting 354 000 households and a total population of 2 million people, had no access to basic telecommunication services.
