ORANGE Botswana has rolled out LTE-A services, boosting data transfer rates on its 4G network. The upgrades are being branded 4G+ and have already been introduced in Greater Gaborone (which houses about 10 per cent of the country’s population) and Francistown, the country’s second-largest city.
LTE-A services will soon be accessible in most parts of the country – both urban and rural – according to Orange, offering subscribers the opportunity to enjoy better streaming, faster downloads and quicker browsing as well as quicker sending and receiving of big files.
Furthermore, Orange Botswana will provide new and improved offers to enable subscribers to enjoy the advantage of the 4G+ offering.
The data offer on the All My Friends tariff (which, Oranges says, enables subscribers to enjoy more Facebook, WhatsApp, Twitter, Instagram, SnapChat and LinkedIn as well as free on-net minutes and free SMSs) has been improved from 200MB to 500MB for all bundles – daily, weekly and monthly. However, All My Internet bundles pricing for unrestricted access to all internet content and services has been dropped by up to 70 percent.
The launch is supported by an array of 4G and 4G+ compatible devices, which are available at Orange Botswana stores.
