Zain Sudan plans to spend about $200 million during 2015 and 2016 to expand and develop its mobile network, as Elfatih Erwa, chief executive of Zain Sudan said to Reuters.
The operator completed the installation of 4G LTE technology in Khartoum but was waiting for a licence from the Sudanese government to operate it, explained Erwa.
Erwa said that the company was still interested in purchasing a stake in Canar. "The desire is still there on both sides."
He said revenue for the first half of 2015 reached $355 million, a 6% increase over the same period last year. Net income rose to $78 million, up 31%.
Zain Sudan claims about 11.5 million subscribers, or 41% of Sudan's total mobile subscribers, and 60% of total sector revenue. Zain Sudan competes with Sudatel, MTN and Canar.
