Telecel Globe, the African unit of Orascom Telecom, is Telecel Zimbabwe’s international partner. Its headquarters are in Egypt.
It has been assisting Telecel Zimbabwe with its expansion and modernisation programme, which has already seen Telecel reducing sharply the cost of SIM cards, a move lauded by the government of Zimbabwe, as well as the prices of mobile phones and international tariffs. IT News Africa
