Airtel launches 3.75G services in Madagascar

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.

According to BuddeComm research, Madagascar's mobile penetration rate is forecast to reach 47% by the end of the year. Meanwhile, according to the same research company, Madagascar's internet usage levels rank among the lowest in the world at 1.7%.
