Addis Ababa - AFP

Ethiopia signed an $800-million (600-million-euro) agreement with Chinese telecom giant ZTE Sunday to expand its telecommunications network, national operator Ethio Telecom said. \"The expansion project is vital to attain Ethio Telecom\'s objective of increasing telecoms service access and coverage across the nation as well as to upgrade the existing network,\" chief executive Andualem Admassie told reporters at a signing ceremony. The agreement is part of a telecommunications expansion project worth $1.6 billion, which is shared with China\'s Huawei Technologies. Huawei and ZTE have split the cost of the scheme. The expansion project aims to increase mobile phone and 3G Internet access throughout the country and introduce 4G broadband Internet in the capital Addis Ababa. Ethio Telecom, the country\'s only phone and Internet provider, aims to increase mobile coverage to 80 percent of Ethiopia with the expansion project. Andualem said the expansion is part of Ethiopia\'s \"growth and transformation plan,\" an economic blueprint that aims to boost growth and help Ethiopia reach middle-income status by 2025. Less than one percent of Ethiopia\'s 85 million people have access to mobile Internet and 23 percent of its population subscribe to mobile phones, according to the International Telecommunications Union (ITU).
