Malawi Telecommunications Limited (MTL), the country’s incumbent fixed line operator, has introduced a wireless broadband service based on WiMAX technology. The Daily Times cites MTL’s acting CEO Elias Imaan as saying that the new offering will be available to both residential and business customers, and will be rolled out in phases across the country, beginning with central business districts and some suburbs of Blantyre, Lilongwe and Mzuzu. The second phase, scheduled to take place in the fourth quarter of 2012, will cover the remaining parts of the three cities, as well as other districts. Imaan added that MTL, which also offers internet access via CDMA and DSL technology, has rebranded all of its consumer internet services under the uniform MiNET brand.
