Networks & IT
Meeting the needs of all our stakeholders, and most importantly our customers, requires us to build a business on world-class platforms and infrastructure.
Expresso operates high-speed networks over 3G. We are building and extending networks across all our markets as we know that demand for internet and data access will increase. In addition we are supporting HSPA to meet this growing demand, to give our customers a truly mobile broadband experience.
Expresso is a leader in adopting a variety of technologies to meet the needs of our customers. In addition we are deploying CDMA2000 networks, to bring internet and voice services to rural communities.
A key network strategy is the growing opportunity to share assets. We have developed an infrastructure-sharing model to increase our footprint across Africa. This is better for the environment and our customers.
Expresso Telecom is bringing broadband services to Africa. Our connection software immediately connects you to the fastest data speed available, whether this is GPRS, EDGE, 3G or WiMAX.
Expresso’s vision is to bring people together, and our networks allow rural communities to be connected. Our advantage is borne from the use of CDMA technology that allows for better geographic coverage. This is allowing us to bring telecom and internet services to more people than was possible before.
“Giving our customers technology solutions that will help them grow their communities will help realise our vision of being one of the leading telecoms operator in Africa. This means we must build great networks that are prepared for growth.”

World-class IT infrastructure
Expresso is developing state of the art infrastructure to meet the growth challenge.
Our systems are developed with the customer in mind, providing high levels of availability, reliability and security. This will give our customers peace of mind knowing they can do business with Expresso and trust us to deliver the best products and services.
Our model is one of partnerships and where we can, we have been outsourcing where relevant and possible. This allows us to gain efficiencies that can be passed to our customers.
“As a major player in Africa, Expresso recognises the importance of building a world-class IT infrastructure that is environmentally friendly. Our innovative approach ensures we develop and implement systems that are standardised and flexible to achieve our business objectives.”
