Chinese hi-tech giant, Huawei announced on Monday it has started providing Fourth Generation (4G) home wireless broadband internet service for Ethiopia's Ethio-Telecom.

"The 4G home wireless broadband internet service uses the existing 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) mobile network as an option of fixed broadband internet service so as to provide users alternative high-speed capacity broadband connection at their preferred areas where wired broadband internet services are inaccessible," a Huawei statement said.

Ethio-Telecom has already started sales of the new high-tech solution in some sales centers, with further plans to widely commence the service in areas where 4G LTE services have already been deployed.

Huawei has previously supported Ethio-Telecom to expand 4G telecom services to major Ethiopian cities such as Addis Ababa, Dire Dawa, Gonder Jigjiga and Semera.

The Chinese-tech giant also provided a mobile money solution for Ethio-Telecom's Tele Birr, which is expected to revolutionize the digital money payment system in the East African country.

Ethiopia is undertaking extensive telecom modernization services with the help of Chinese firms as part of the country's aim of realizing digital inclusion and boosting the size of its digital economy, with the provision of reliable, high band-width and high-speed telecom services.
