AIRTEL SEYCHELLES UPGRADES TO 4G NETWORKS

The telecommunication company Airtel has upgraded its internet service by moving to 4G LTE from 3G.

This will enable costumers to use the internet at a faster speed of up to 100mbps.

In his speech to officially launch the technology on the 26th November, Vice President Danny Faure described it as another important achievement in the history of information communication technology in Seychelles. “We are launching the latest phase of the digital revolution that is sweeping Seychelles and will continue to transform our lives. It is indeed an accomplishment; the launch of 4G is only the latest step in Airtel’s commitment to deliver one of the best networks in the world to consumers and businesses.”

Vice President Faure added the new infrastructure will also boost access to various e-services such as e-governance, e-banking, e-learning and e-health. “Let us ensure that we not only have the infrastructure which can deliver high speed access but as a country we need to strive to meet our people’s expectations in terms of quality of service and affordability.”

To benefit from the service, customers have to go to an Airtel showroom to get a 4G enabled SIM card. They will also have to use a 4G enabled device, be it mobile phones, dongles, router or tablet.
