Oshetu 1 joins the network grid
07 December 2017 | Technology
The program, 081Every1, is set to transform the national communications network grid in the country, with MTC set to build around 524 new sites. The Kaibasen site is the first base station in MTC’s billion dollar undertaking to provide Namibia with 100% digital cover with 3G connectivity. Once complete in 2019, rural areas which previously had only 2G networks access will have access to 3G connectivity, thus increasing speed and convenience of communication.
The Kaibasen site is a 25-meter lattice base transmitter station (BTS) and 3G enabled, serving the residents of Oshetu 1, 2 and 3 informal settlement areas, as well as some sections of the Nau Aib residential area.
