About Aquiva Wireless
The company was established in 2007.
Aquiva has deployed a metro fibre network deployed in Harare, Zimbabwe between years 2011-2015 and operated an international distributorship with KA-Band and KU-Band broadband satellite providers in Zimbabwe until 2019.
Aquiva has over the years installed 802.16e Wireless Broadband base stations in Harare, Bulawayo, Kwekwe, Beitbridge and Mutare and offered stable internet connectivity to business and home connections for over eight years. Currently the company remains with activity in Harare, following decommissioning of the sites in other towns in order to facilitate for national frequency replan activities initiated by The Postal and Telecommunications Regulatory Authority of Zimbabwe (POTRAZ).
The company is one of the few licensed private players that have been able to withstand the economic challenges though it remains depressed due to lack of capital injection which has incapacitated its ability to grow and adversely affected its cash flows and operations. Company has however, initiated three pronged Services Strategy to counter and impact its capital intensive infrastructure business.
The strategy dovetails on the impact on telecommunications infrastructure created by investing in cyber security, fin-tech and software development in an environment in which 98% of business software utilised in Africa by local industry is foreign outsourced. Fibre Optics infrastructure and Wireless Broadband remain at the pinnacle and centre stage of the infrastructure business for the company in Zimbabwe.
The effects of an unforeseen Covid-19 have delayed plans of the company's services, and the company is gearing itself to find solutions to the posed challenges.
