Afghanistan's Roshan has launched its 3G network, with coverage initially available in in Kabul, and then rolled out nationwide.
Last month Roshan secured a loan from the International Finance Corporation, in the amount of $147 million, to support the acquisition of the company's 3G spectrum license and continued development of network infrastructure.
"It has always been Roshan's vision to leverage technology and innovation to bridge critical needs gaps and improve the lives of those in the community. 3G Jahaan is the next step in that vision, and a leap forward for the people of Afghanistan," Karim Khoja, Roshan Chief Executive Officer, said.
"Today's launch of our 3G service reinforces Roshan's ongoing mission to providing the highest quality service and enabling greater access for our customers. 3G Jahaan is not just about speed, but our continued commitment to the overall customer experience," Khoja added.
