The launch, which was graced by minister of information communication, technology and civic education Patricia Kaliati took place on Friday evening at Mount Soche Hotel in Blantyre.

Airtel Malawi Managing Director Charles Kamoto said the launch of broadband means the company will now meet the growing demand of their exceptional broadband services.

“Our differentiation lies in speed based on 1:1 contention ratio, superior resilience on the back of 4 redundant routes offering your consistency and reliability, wide coverage and ease of connectivity to anywhere in Malawi ,” said Kamoto.

Kamoto also said the launch of the broadband is a milestone for Airtel Malawi in fulfilling their commitment in providing quality internet services and corporate connectivity.

He said this is another step up for them as they strive to make internet access and corporate connectivity easy and widely accessible whilst at the same time being a one stop shop with their mobile broadband and voice on post-paid and prepaid.

“We are now on the right path to convergent of service delivery from contracting to bill delivery in a turnkey solution. With the launch of this service tonight, we believe that we will provide the kind of service organizations’ need, offering endless opportunities for innovations to our valued customers,” he said.

He also assured their customers that Airtel Malawi will continue to work hard to ensure that they keep Malawi at the forefront of ground-breaking communication technologies.

“We are therefore committed to keeping you ahead by  providing you with the latest technological trends alongside a network that is reliable and of superior quality,” said Kamoto.

In her speech, Minister of Information Communication, Technology and Civic Education, Patricia Kaliati described the launch of the broadband as a historic occasion for government and for many who have shared this vision that is finally being realized.

Kaliati said internet plays a vital role in the delivery of services across all sectors of the country’s economy.

“Government is particularly interested in the development of internet and its accessibility in order to enhance the bigger developmental agenda of enhancing our GPD growth, creating jobs and fundamentally improving the lives of our people and in the process growing our economy,” she said.

She also urged Airtel Malawi and other players in the market always to be mindful of the speed of the technological and industry changes that characterize the ICT sector and be on their toes to ably catch up with the trends as the world is moving so fast due to technological advancement.

What a baffling article! I thought that Airtel already did broadband. My Airtel connection at the moment shows that it is HSPA, which I THINK is 3.75G.

““Our differentiation lies in speed based on 1:1 contention ratio … ” and so on.

Jargon like that is pretty meaningless to simple villagers like me. Why not write the article in a way that we can understand it, rather than just parroting what is in the Airtel press release.
