Mozambican mobile telecommunications companies Mo ambique Celular (mcel) and Vodacom have both been granted 3G licenses, local media reported.
Under the terms of the licenses will be required to expand their 3G network to all districts of the country by 31 December 2015, including the country's development corridors and tourist resorts as well as improving the network in what are considered to be strategic locations.
