Bharti Airtel launches new internet service
23 January 2012
Bharti Airtel, the internet giant, has announced that it has launched its 3.75G service in Zambia.
Through the new technology, Zambians will have access to high speed internet access which allows them to make video calls, stream and download music.
In addition to this, internet users in the African country will be able to watch live television on their mobile handset through Bharti Airtels service.
According to Fayaz King, the managing director at Airtel Zambia, the 3.75G technology will offer their customers the chance to interact with data in a different way.
This, he explained, is why Airtel doesn't view 3.75G as a product. Rather, Mr King said the service is a platform that allows the community to broaden its social and commercial horizons.
Airtel has claimed that the new service will offer speeds up to 21 Mbps for its users, many whom include workers at some of the country's biggest businesses.
