Libyan-owned Rwandatel plans to import more GSM-enabled mobile phones in response to growing demand in the local market. Rwandatel’s U120 handsets manufactured by Huawei sold-out a month after their introduction on the local market. According to Patrick Kariningufu, Rwandatel’s chief executive officer, the phones are expected in the country in the next three to four weeks. Rwandatel launched its GSM and W-CDMA network in early December 2008 after its acquisition by LAP Green Network a subsidiary of Libyan African Portfolio. Within the first week it recorded over 55,000 wireless subscribers, increasing to 120,000 in the first three weeks. According to allAfrica.com, the company is set to construct 86 masts by end of February in order to improve its national network coverage.
