On the 17th February, 2023, It would have been 25 years since the first telephone call from a mobile device was made in Botswana through the first Mobile Network Operator (MNO) in Botswana, Mascom Wireless.
“Our journey to 25 has been momentous with many firsts for the Botswana market. Over the years, Mascom has continued to upgrade network coverage, quality, and accessibility across the country. We continue to support various communities across Botswana including the Presidential Housing Appeal with over 40 houses, Mascom Kitsong Centres, established in over 114 villages, the Easter Maun spectacle, Mascom Derby and connected over 600 public schools with internet.
As we celebrate 25 years with our various stakeholders, we wish to thank and appreciate each one of you for the continued support and entrusting us with all your digital connectivity and communications needs,” said the company in a statement.
