News : TelOne to Kick-start Project
Harare, Zimbabwe, March 9, 2016 -- TelOne is finalising documentation to kick-start its network mordenisation project which is set to be completed in the next 12 months, an executive has said.
TelOne signed a loan facility with China’s Exim Bank to finance its network modernisation programme last year. The signing ceremony was done during the visit by Chinese President Xi Jinping in December.
Speaking at the TelOne call centre launch in Borrowdale recently, TelOne managing director Chipo Mtasa said the company was looking at providing a unified service that apart from the fixed services would introduce mobility.
"We should kick off the projects this year and it has a 12-month implementation, we already have the contractor and the funding. All we need now is to just go through the necessary documentation that will facilitate to start the project," Mtasa said.
"We are at the preparatory stage for some of the TelOne projects, we are finalising so that the projects can kick off, but it is all work in progress."
She said TelOne was looking at providing services above its traditional voice service such as enhanced data services.
"We will be giving a fixed mobile convergence where we should be able to provide our customers Internet from a mobile device or where ever. Where the telecommunication sector have moved is that there is no longer importance of saying this is fixed or this is mobile, it’s all about universal unified services," she said.
Apart from the services that TelOne is offering, she said the company would be able to offer broadband services, Internet with speed not being experienced at the moment.
She said TelOne was looking at providing unified services such that a landline number could be used on the mobile phone.
