Zamtel is a Zambian telecommunications company, which focused on growing its global roaming footprint in order to provide quality service. It recently expanded its territory by adding the United Arab Emirate-based telecommunications operator Du and the United Kingdom’s H3G network.
With these two agreements, which were both signed this month, Zamtel’s total post paid roaming footprint now includes 147 networks in 86 countries as well as 22 pre-paid networks in 21 countries, including all right of the countries that border Zambia.
"We are pleased to announce the addition of two key business and transit traffic hubs to the list of Zamtel roaming destinations," said Evans Muhanga, chief marketing officer at Zamtel. He added that Zamtel customers will benefit from roaming on the highest quality, most convenient and affordable network whenever they are away from Zambia.
Zamtel’s partnerships have exploded in the past 12 months. Last August, the company had only 96 post-paid roaming partners and just two pre-paid partners, so 2012 has been an extremely busy year for the Zambian company. These partnerships help Zamtel in its mission to ensure that its customers remain connected to friends, family and business associates no matter where they are in the world without having to buy a new SIM card.
The Dubai deal extends Zamtel’s reach into the Persian Gulf and Arabian Peninsula area, and gives it a foothold in a growing commercial hub that boasts state of the art infrastructure and a thriving business environment. It is the second most popular shopping destination in the world as well.
