Newly-established Swazi Mobile, which competes with Swazi MTN, has penetrated 27 countries both in Africa and elsewhere in terms of roaming services, APA can report on Monday.
The countries are Tanzania, Egypt, Ghana, Mozambique, Nigeria, Democratic Republic of Congo, Albania, South Africa, Kenya, Lesotho, Germany, United Kingdom, Ireland, Italy, India, Australia, Netherlands, United States of America, Greece, Hungary, Malta, Turkey, Portugal, Spain, Romania, Czech Republic and New Zealand.
The telecommunications company became operational in July this year, exactly six months after it was granted a license, ending Swazi MTN’s 19-year monopoly.
Its milestones include coverage of over 100 000 subscribers in less than six months and venturing into fixed wireless broadband.
The roaming service, according to Swazi Mobile Brand and Communications Manager, Macford Sibandze, follows the signing of an agreement with one of the world’s leading telecommunications companies, Vodafone Group.
“This began with the signing of an agreement with South African giants, Telkom SA. The service came at a perfect time in most of the countries as the company was aware that they had visitors from Swaziland,” the official said.
