In a bid to revolutionise connectivity services, Mobile Telecommunications Company (MTC) and the Keetmanshoop Town Council have formalised a partnership through a Memorandum of Understanding.

The initiative is set to transform the town's service delivery into the digital age, promising a transformative impact on the community.

The MoU encompasses different pillars of enablement for utilities, under which the two entities will work together to make service delivery digital for the residents of Keetmanshoop.

The core objective is to digitise service delivery mechanisms, with a primary focus on introducing smart communications, Wi-Fi services, and transitioning water and electricity metres into digital forms.

This is not the first partnership of this kind; previous partnerships have been forged with key entities such as the Swakopmund Town Council and regional electricity providers like Nored, Cenored, and Erongo Red.

Before formalising the MoU, the Keetmanshoop municipality's Department of Local Economic Development was diligently engaged in community consultations to ensure the alignment of the partnership with the residents' needs and expectations.

The town council is also making preparations to teach residents how to use the digital systems before implementing them.

MTC is set to extend its impact in the region through corporate social responsibility initiatives such as bursary schemes, internship programmes, and the enhancement of educational institutions within the town.
