Aquiva Wireless, a start-up Zimbabwean broadband provider, has awarded Huawei Technologies a USD7.2 million contract to deploy a WiMAX-based wireless access network.
Government-backed newspaper The Herald reports that the planned network will consist of 92 base stations covering the country's largest cities, whilst Aquiva also expects to sign a USD3.6 million contract with SEACOM for capacity on the newly built submarine cable via a terrestrial link through South Africa to the Zimbabwean border at Beitbridge. In September 2009 CommsUpdate reported that the Postal and Telecommunications Regulatory Authority of Zimbabwe (POTRAZ) had granted new 'Class A' ISP licences (allowing data transmission, internet access and VoIP telephony services) to eight applicants including Aquiva and Ecoweb, and two months later Aquiva tendered supply contracts for a fibre-optic cable transmission network.

The company's website is inviting residential and business customers to sign up for broadband access based on WiMAX, fibre-optics and ADSL technologies. The site also advertises VoIP, business data solutions and video calling.
