The services of 4G Africa are designed for both residential and business customers and include Internet access, Voice over IP, and hosting among other services. The network design will enable fixed and nomadic wireless connectivity for home and office as well as providing mobile services to the customers, Volubill said in a statement. The first phase of the network provides indoor coverage for USB dongles and desktop modems in major residential and business areas of the city of Douala, the biggest town in Cameroon; the second phase will provide services in the capital Yaounde and is scheduled to be completed in the summer of this year. The first wireless broadband service of 4G Africa was launched in Cameroon in May under the brand name YooMee.
