Sudan readies to launch 4G.

The newspaper further reports that the minister did not provide additional information on the coverage or whether the service would be provided by all carriers.

It was also reported that a 4G network would provide comprehensive and secure solutions for voice, data and multimedia streaming services to users and much higher speed than is currently available.

"The entire Sudan will be covered by the internet and computer services through e-government and other services. The telecommunications sector will contribute to the national income by 10%," Sudan Tribune quoted Abdullah.
