Telekom Networks Malawi rolls out 4.5G

Telekom Networks Malawi (TNM) has officially launched a 4.5G network, which the company claims is the first of its kind in the country.

The 4.5G network is expected to improve data service provision, including media streaming and messaging services.

ICT Minister Nicholas Dausi said by constantly investing in network upgrades and innovations, TNM continues to demonstrate its willingness to become a key player in the country's telecom market and partner of the government in developing the nation.

TNM is Malawi's second largest operator after Airtel Malawi with a market share of 43.7%. The launch of the 4.5G network follows an investment of K21.2 billion (about US$30 million) towards a network upgrade.

"TNM's commitment to contribute to Malawi's economic growth effort is well noted as the company constantly invests in upgrades and innovation for its network platforms," Dausi said.

TNM board chairperson George Partridge said the company's digital transformation journey dates back to two years ago when it diversified its investment in line with global trends from the traditional global system for mobile communications (GSM) into data and broadband.

"The broad range of services and products powered by TNM network platform makes it possible for businesses and individuals to maximise their productivity and operate with unprecedented levels of speed and efficient," Partridge said.
