Orange launches TD-LTE network in Botswana

Orange Botswana has announced the launch of a new TD-LTE network for consumers and enterprises, branded as Konnecta Max.

The new network will offer fixed and wireless connectivity to 22 towns nationwide. CommsUpdate reports that it will be available for both prepaid and postpaid subscribers, and will offer three pricing plans for each payment type.

The operator’s CEO Patrick Benon told ITWeb: “With the COVID-19 crisis, Botswana’s need for fixed internet has tremendously increased, and our customers need more speed, more stability and unlimited internet at an affordable price.”

“We have decided to use 4G-TDD technology because at home our customers consume heavy amounts of data, and they want unlimited internet. Also, it was important to separate the fixed internet network from the mobile network to avoid fixed internet usage compromising the quality of our mobile usage.”
