Afghan Telecom to offer 3G services

afghan telecomAfghan Telecom, which operates under the stewardship of Ministry of Communications and Information Technology, plans to launch the third generation, 3G, information technology system.

A contract worth USD 32mn has been signed between Afghan Telecom and a Chinese firm on providing 3G and Global System for Mobile (GSM) as well as the installation of an additional 700 telecommunication towers in remote areas.

The Ministry intends switching to GSM technology from the current Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) mobile phone services in a bid to lower call rates.

The new system would reduce calling rates within a network by one Afghani and to other networks by two Afghanis.
