TelOne And NetOne To Adopt Cost-Effective Rollout Strategy
News: Zimbabwe-based state-owned telecoms operators TelOne and NetOne have adopted a new communications infrastructure deployment policy that will help reduce rollout costs. TelOne is utilising the power transmission poles and routes to deploy cables throughout the country instead of digging trenches. The government of Zimbabwe is expected to sign a US$218mn loan with China to facilitate broadband rollout. The government has instructed NetOne to use the funds from the loan efficiently.
