Stanlet Simataa, Namibia's minister of information and communication technology has officially activated MTC's new 3G network tower in Vergenoeg Farm in the Omaheke region, according to TeleGeography’s CommsUpdate.

MNO plans to erect eight towers in the Omaheke region as part of its 081Every1 project. This aims to provide network coverage to 100 per cent of the Namibian population by constructing 524 network towers nationwide. The new tower in Vergenoeg and another in the nearby settlement of Helena have now been switched on in phase one of the project. 

This will initially extend coverage to 80 per cent of the region's population. In other areas, five towers have been activated in the Tsumkwe constituency in the Otjozondjupa region, where another four towers are still under construction.
