Airtel Africa is a leading provider of telecommunications and mobile money services in 14 countries across Africa. Today, the company announced that its subsidiary in Zambia, Airtel Networks Zambia plc (called “Airtel Zambia”), has bought 60 MHz of additional spectrum in the 800 MHz and 2600 MHz bands from the Zambia Information and Communications Technology Authority (ZICTA) for a total of $29 million, paid in local currency.
