The Zambia Information and Technology Authority (ZICTA) plans to deploy over 160 new telecom towers across the country. This strategic initiative aims to enhance connectivity and supplement the ongoing efforts of telecom operators.

This tower installation project is part of ZICTA's broader program, which aims to install 980 communication towers by 2025. The goal is to address the communication gap in the country, aligning with the objectives of the Universal Access Master Plan. Furthermore, the government's digital transformation program plans to achieve comprehensive telecommunications coverage for the entire population by 2030.

In pursuit of these goals, the Zambian government has granted authorization to Starlink to provide high-speed satellite Internet services in the country. Additionally, various other initiatives have been undertaken, including the elimination of roaming charges with neighboring countries, and the strengthening of ICT cooperation with Angola.
