Mobile carrier Unitel increases network coverage in Angola

20 January 2010

Luanda, Angola, 20 Jan – Angola’s largest mobile telecommunications operator Unitel has expanded its network coverage to a further 11 municipal areas in the country, by installing new network stations in different provinces, the operator said in a statement published in Luanda.

With its consolidated leadership of the Angolan mobile telecommunications market, Unitel recently reached a total of 5.5 million customers.

There are two mobile telecommunications networks in Angola, state company Angola Telecom and private Unitel, which started operating in 2001 and has a market share of over 60 percent.

The system used in Angola is GSM, and the roaming service thus allows for use of mobile phones that use the same system. (macauhub)
