Africell plans to expand network in DRC

Africell has confirmed plans for an ambitious expansion of its network in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

Agence Ecofin reported that the firm, which is headquartered in the UK, plans to double the size of its network footprint in the market, quoting Chief Investment Officer Ian Paterson as saying that it would constitute “a huge expansion of our network”.

Paterson added that the build-out would largely take place in the east of the vast country, but that some areas of central and western regions – including Bandundu, Kasai and Kikwit – would also see new deployments.
