He also urged ZESCO and Zamtel to speed up the process of installing the optic fiber network in the country so that telecom transmission costs could be reduced.

The Zambian government has decided not to liberalize the international gateway as required by some private mobile service providers, claiming that the Mwembeshi Earth Station is not being fully utilized.

There have been a series of calls for the government to reduce the international gateway license from 12 million U.S. dollars and allow the private sector to apply for their own gateway.

Currently, private mobile operators have to reroute their
international calls through state-owned Zamtel, which has
exclusive rights to the Mwembeshi Earth Station and charges usage fees.

The issue of liberalizing the international gateway has been subject of discussion of late and there are arguments that it
promotes anti-competitive practices by Zamtel.
