Mozambique's third mobile network operator Movitel has commercially launched its services, although it has in fact been selling its prepay cards from shops for the past three weeks.

Movitel is a consortium between Vietnam's Viettel, and SPI, a holding company of Mozambique's ruling Frelimo Party.

Movitel was granted its license in November 2010 for a payment of US$29 million and has subsequently deployed 1,800 base stations across the country.

The company says that it has invested nearly USD120 million in its network.

Mozambique's incumbent networks are Vodacom and M-Cel.
