The Cabinet minister who made this such statement during a visit to the city of Ndalatando, where he inaugurated public stations for free emission of the internet signal, said that it is worrying that a large part of the section of almost 60 kilometers between the towns of Zenza do Itombe (in the municipality of Cambambe) and the city of Ndalatando (capital of the province) are discovered by the signal of the mobile telephone networks.

In view of the intense traffic of vehicles on the aforementioned road, José Carvalho da Rocha said that this situation is worrying, given the need to guarantee rapid assistance to the victims and ensure interaction of populations with new technologies.

In order to reverse the current situation, the minister ensured contacts with mobile telephone network operators for the urgent deployment of a telecommunications tower in the town of Beira Alta (Cambambe municipality), which should ensure the expansion of the signal over a larger radius action along the road.
