In a statement sent to VerAngola, Unitel states that the services were extended in the localities of Sumbe (Cuanza Sul), Cabala (Luanda), Cacuso (Malanje), Caluquembe (Huíla), Camacupa and Andulo (Bié), Tomboco and Quinzau (Zaire) and Fucauma (Lunda Norte).
In addition, the locality of Lombe, in the province of Malanje, received 3G technology.
According to the note, the 3G and 4G services already available in 516 localities, communes and municipalities in the country, enable voice and data transmission.
"4G now covers the capitals of Angola's 18 provinces, and has a deployment of 28.7 percent in municipalities and above 12.8 percent in communes," the note said.
Of the more than 14,000 kilometers of optical fiber, around 13,000 are already in service, the note indicates, adding that the interventions that have been carried out in the operator's network since November, "have made it possible to improve the signal, in addition to allowing the consolidation of the extension of services and the basic infrastructure for 5G".
The note also states that "on December 30, Unitel and Ericsson successfully completed the first 5G data call in Angola using an allocated mid-band spectrum of 3.5 GHz".
