ZAMTEL has started the installation of a 10 Million-subscriber capacity Online Charging System’ equipment that will allow it to double its subscriber base by 2023.
Zamtel Chief Executive Officer Sydney Mupeta explains that the 5-point 7 million US dollar equipment will be installed and commissioned within three months.
Mr. Mupeta says the equipment will facilitate easier subscriber management process when installed.
He adds that the installation of the new online charging system is a huge milestone in positioning the Company for future growth.
Mr. Mupeta says the old system was constraining growth as it limited the number of new customers that could be added to the network.
He says the development will also involve migration of all Zamtel customers to the new system which might cause minimal disruption of service.
