CASiTEL Wins in Africa

March 2019

CASiTEL has won a competitive bid to carry out audit and re-planning of the FM broadcasting services in Malawi. The contract has been awarded by Malawi Communications Regulatory Authority (MACRA).

The study has been commissioned by MACRA due to congestion in the band impacting the introduction of new services. The study will include auditing of the current FM plan and its re-planning to free up more channels for new services. The results will be a tool through which MACRA will fulfil its mandate of creating an enabling environment for the growth of services in broadcasting.
