Angolan mobile phone service operator Unitel says it has expanded its roaming service network to Zimbabwe and India by partnering with service providers Net One in Zimbabwe and Airtel of India.

A partnership, signed last December with Zimbabwea's Net One resulted in the commercial launch of a new GSM service, according to a statement from Unitel here Thursday.

Unitel said the agreement with Net One allowed it to have more efficient management of the routing of overseas calls and SMS.

The agreement with India's Airtel meanwhile resulted in access to four new GSM services (voice and SMS) with broadband access to the GSM and GPRS (mobile data) service in India.

With the two partnerships, Unitel said it had strengthened its position in the world market, with more than 400 partner operators in the voice roaming service, more than 70 in the prepaid CAMEL service and the offer of the mobile data service in 140 Countries.

The establishment of new agreements was part of Unitel's commitment to continue to offer increasingly complete and comprehensive solutions to its customers, it added.

Unitel S.A. is an Angolan company providing services in the area of mobile telecommunications, and was the first to operate with GSM technology in the domestic market. It was incorporated in 1998 and entered the market in 2001.
