Ethio telecom to Launch 5G Next Week

May 6 , 2022

The state-owned Ethio telecom is to launch a 5G service on May 9, 2022, during a high pitched event to be held at the Sheraton Addis.

The operator has been working with Chinese tech giant Huwaei to prepare for the introduction, including the spending of 41 million dollars on Huawei-powered core systems that would allow for the accommodation of 5G.

The launch, which comes as the telecom monopoly prepares for its first taste of competition in the form of Safaricom Ethiopia Plc, would make Ethiopia one of only a handful of African countries to avail a 5G network. Others include South Africa and neighbouring Kenya.
