Paratus Zambia has been given the last available data gateway license in Zambia from the Zambia Information and Communications Technology Authority (ZICTA).
The company in a write-up obtained from TechTrends by Zambia Monitor on Thursday ,described the development as a big deal.
It stated that the only data license holders can now deploy international gateways, cross-border communications services, and import internet data traffic into the country.
This means that Paratus Zambia and the other five data gateway licensees in Zambia hold exclusive rights to import and export internet data capacity.
This service was previously limited to mobile network and carrier providers only.
