Zamtel grows its roaming footprint

By Edith Mwale, Lusaka, Zambia

The Zambia Telecommunication Company (Zamtel) grown its global roaming footprint with the latest addition to the list being “Du”, the United Arab Emirates-based  telecom operator and the United Kingdom’s H3G network.

The two unilateral roaming deals were sealed this month in separate agreements signed between Zamtel, Du and Hutchison3G network of UK. 

The development brings Zamtel’s total post paid roaming foot print to 147 networks in 86 countries and 22 pre-paid networks in 21 countries, including coverage in all the eight neighbouring countries (South Africa, Botswana and Namibia). 

This accelerated partnership is compared against 96 post-paid roaming partners and two prepaid roaming partners that Zamtel had by August last year, the company said in a statement yesterday.

The development the company said is an effort to ensure that Zamtel customers are indeed able to ‘Live Life Today’ by  ensuring they remain connected to their friends, business partners and loved ones beyond the nation’s borders without having to buy another sim card.

 “We are pleased to announce the addition of two key business and transit traffic hubs to the list of Zamtel roaming destinations,” said Zamtel Chief Marketing Officer, Evans Muhanga, adding that customers will enjoy the benefit of roaming on the most affordable, convenient and quality Zamtel network while on their business or holiday trips.
