Paratus, a Namibian based telecommunications company has expanded an initial National Mobile-LTE network. The LTE network will be launched in Walvisbay and Swakopmund.
The telco invested in its independent Mobile-LTE network—an infrastructure that is not reliant on other service providers, to offer its clients and businesses an alternative to offerings already available.
Paratus has been able to offer its subscribers access to higher network capacity at affordable prices since the completion of the Trans Kalahari Fiber (TKF). TKF is connected directly to WACS in Swakopmund and Buitepos border down to the east of Namibia.
Paratus Namibia Managing Director, Andrew Hall said they have established more network redundancy (a method for ensuring network availability in case of a network device or path failure and unavailability) to international traffic.
In his words; “Paratus currently offers one of the most affordable rates on data top-ups at merely N$ 15 per gigabyte. With the launch of our Mumwe product, a first of its kind in Namibia, we are now able to allow our customers to tap into one centralised data pool from multiple technologies using either Mobile-LTE, Fixed-LTE, Fiber or a WiMAX connection.”
Aside from deploying its network in Walvisbay and Swakopmund, Paratus can now WiMAX services to both towns.
