According to allAfrica, the Eritrean Telecommunication Corporation Service (Eritel) is planning to expand the country’s wireless infrastructure throughout all of its regions. Manager of Eritel, Tesfaslasie Berhane, said that over 120,000 customers will benefit from the new service, adding that its installation will be more cost effective than improving the country’s fixed line network. The plan involves the installation of a 21km fibre-optic underground cable and the replacement of existing lines in numerous towns and rural areas. Berhane indicated that new infrastructure has already been introduced in eight regions, and the number of public phones has increased to over 600.
