The telecoms regulators of four Southern African countries have announced plans to reduce the roaming charges permitted by their mobile networks.
The Communications Regulatory Authority of Namibia (CRAN), which is overseeing the project said the new tariffs will come into effect as soon as next month, and will also see further cuts over the next few years.
The countries in the agreement are Botswana, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
In addition, a recommendation is to be made to the communications Regulators' Association of Southern Africa (CRASA) for a regional clearing house to be established.
That could lead to more countries joining the pact later.
