Vodafone Zambia launches LTE services to compete with the MNOs
Zambia is a landlocked country which has recently gained access to international submarine fibre optic cables. This has led to some significant retail price reductions for broadband services, and facilitated domestic fibre builds. Third Generation (3G) mobile broadband services have been launched and national fibre networks are being rolled out by four different companies. The first commercial LTE network launches have been undertaken, which has dramatically increased the number of mobile broadband subscribers in the country. Several ISPs have also rolled out WiMAX wireless broadband networks. These developments are set to increase overall broadband penetration significantly in coming years.
Although the mobile voice market is approaching saturation, the government is reviving old plans to issue a fourth mobile licence. The country's telecoms regulator has launched legal action against the existing mobile networks because of poor quality of service (QoS).

Key developments:
Zamtel launches LTE service in the Copperbelt Province as part of the Universal Access Service;
Vodafone Zambia launches LTE service;
iWayAfrica Zambia adds FttP services to its VSAT offerings;
Government contracts Huawei for second phase of 500 tower rural mobile infrastructure project;
Liquid Telecom extends FttP services;
IMF presses government to sell its stake in Zamtel;
Western Fibre Route cable connecting Malawi to Zambia;
Airtel commits an additional $142 million for network expansion and upgrades;
Mobile subscriber base falls as unregistered SIM cards are removed from operators' services;
Rural base stations come online as part of government project to extend mobile and ICT services to rural areas;
Report update includes the regulator's market updates to June 2016, operator data to Q3 2016, recent market developments.
