The Postal and Telecommunications Regulatory Authority of Zimbabwe (POTRAZ), is currently accepting proposals from local and external firms to set up shop citing that Zimbabwe still has more space for mobile telecommunication projects.
Concern has been raised over the issue of licensing more players in Zimbabwe"s mobile telecommunications industry with experts being of the view that the country does not need any more new players.
However, POTRAZ, Director General, Dr Gift Machengete, says more players are required to facilitate affordable charges.
"We have not reached that point of over-saturation because what we need are more players," he indicated.
Dr. Machengete says it is within the interest of the nation that licenses for new projects in the sector are also granted in line with the obtaining regulations governing the industry.
According to POTRAZ, the issue of mobile charges or tariffs continues to be monitored in line with the prevailing economic climate.
