Telecommunications network firm, Airtel, says it has launched a 3.75G data service platform in Madagascar.

The 3.75G network is a further development to 3G, in so far as it allows for faster download speeds.

“3.75G technology will give our customers the opportunity to interact with data in a completely different way,” said Heiko Schlittke, managing director, Airtel Madagascar.

“Access to basic telecommunications services is crucial for economic development, however these services are not available to all in Madagascar,” added Schlittke.
