Mozambique gets prepped for 5G services


Mozambique has a low mobile penetration rate, reflecting the relatively incomplete infrastructure which has been developed over the years, even though the country was one of the first in the region to provide a competitive telecom industry.


The market is dominated by older technologies, including 3G, though this in itself is still common among countries in the region where the immaturity of the data market has meant that there is little consumer demand for high-end and data-rich applications requiring fast transfers.


This explains the delay in operators providing LTE services. Vodacom Mozambique launched services in October 2018 following the award of its unified telecoms licence in July 2018. This was followed by Movitel in mid-2019, though Mozambique Telecom did not begin to trial LTE until May 2020. In June 2021, the company announced plans to expand the reach of its LTE infrastructure, aiming to provide national coverage.


The company at the same time began trialling 5G services in Maputo. Given the existing capacity within LTE networks, it is not expected that 5G will be launched commercially for some time yet, though the company is preparing itself in readiness.
