PowerCom to construct new towers

19 February 2021 | Sakenuus
PowerCom has commenced with the construction of four new towers, in Kupferquelle and Eenghodi constituencies in Oshikoto region, Ncaute in Kavango East, and Onkani in the Omusati region, as part of 22 towers planned for this year.

Its CEO, Alisa Amupolo, in a media statement on Wednesday said the company has aligned itself with the growth of these towns and rural villages and has responded to the growing demands of its inhabitants in as far as connectivity is concerned.

“By providing these infrastructures, it means individuals and businesses can communicate and facilitate business, furthermore, adding value to our country's economic growth,” she stated.

Amupolo further said the pandemic has placed demands for new infrastructure to accelerate coverage and capacity challenges, and thus the need to complete the towers as soon as possible.

The new towers are expected to be completed by end of April 2021.

Upon completion, the towers will offer services to a diverse array of industries, including but not limited to telecommunication operators, broadcasters, internet service providers, the transport sector including rail and aviation, security sector, farmers, and municipalities.

Furthermore, Amupolo mentioned that Covid-19 has affected every area of life for the average Namibian, from work, leisure, and community involvement to parenting and school thus prioritizing the need for connectivity, incongruence with the new normal and digital lifestyles, especially during this pandemic.

Amupolo also explained that by providing these infrastructures, individual end-users, businesses, hospitals, schools, universities, can continue communicating and facilitating business remotely.

“The pandemic had a lasting impact on how technology integrates into our daily lives. With these new towers PowerCom strives to minimize the digital divide by enabling connectivity for every Namibian,”she concluded.- Nampa
