Namibia : PowerCom to invest $1.8mln for better Internet connectivity next year

(Ecofin Agency) - PowerCom (Pty) Ltd, Telecom Namibia's subsidiary dedicated to the development of telecom infrastructure, announces an investment of N$27 million ($1.8 million) in 2020.

According to CEO Alisa Amupolo (pictured), the project consists of the construction of new towers across the country to improve the quality of Internet connectivity, especially in pivotal areas of internet access.

Construction of new towers, especially in rural areas, brings vastly improved connectivity to citizens and businesses,” Alisa Amupolo said. She added that this operation will not only contribute to increasing the effectiveness of communication throughout the country but it will also stimulate the development of other activities.

The new telecom towers will be built in the regions of Erongo, Khomas, Kharas, Hardap, Oshikoto, Otjozondjupa, and Kunene. PowerCom has announced that it will also spend nearly N$1 million ($0.068 million) next year to maintain 80 existing towers across the country.

The ICT landscape is not only going to evolve in the coming years, but it will be transformed entirely, and it is vital that PowerCom continues to invest in preparing for this future as effectively as its clients undoubtedly will,” she believed.
