Somalia's Glocall Telecoms has announced plans to deploy a LTE network using Tazca Connects LTE as a Service in Mogadishu.
Tazca Connect's service will be powered by a software platform from Lemko.
Mobeen Bhamjee, Glocall Telecoms CEO, stated that "Tazca Connects LTE offering, backed by Lemko Corps distributed LTE architecture, was selected due to the need for an efficient, cost effective 4G LTE solution, deployable on demand, which would enable affordable, mass broadband penetration in challenging environments."
Tazca Connects said that the Lemko software, when combined with its pay-as-you-grow LTE models and rapid deployments, allows Tazca and its local partners to provide the lowest per-subscriber per GB MHz POP cost in any market.
No details about when the network is expected to be launched were provided.
