Foris Telecom, a mobile broadband Internet and applications service provider, has successfully launched its WiMAX network in Mozambique and Kampala, Uganda.
The network, supplied by Alvarion, operating in the 2.5 GHz frequency range, is the first WiMAX deployment in Uganda and Mozambique.
"Alvarion's best-of-breed solution allows us to meet the specific demands of the African market," said Dov Slook, CEO and Chairman of Foris Telecom.
