Telekom Networks Malawi (TNM) has announced the expansion of its roaming services to 153 new destinations. This development is the result of TNM's partnership with Comfone, a roaming services provider. The expansion aims to provide TNM customers with seamless communication and connectivity while travelling outside the country, said TNM in a statement on Wednesday.
Convenient Roaming for TNM Customers
In its release TNM said, "The wider roaming options gives TNM customers the comfort for easy connectivity away from Malawi. Following the new partnership, TNM now has over 300 roaming partners covering 153 countries and is now available to both postpaid and prepaid customers."
"As we target at providing the best digital experience to Malawi, the expanded roaming destinations give our customers the conveniency and extra value of being on the best network in country. Another exciting addition is the extension of the service to our prepaid customers," added TNM.

Roaming Services follows 5G Network
The expansion of roaming services comes after the launch of 5G Network by TNM in May 2023, as reported by TelecomTalk. TNM says its 5G network promises excellent end-user experiences, offering higher internet speeds with minimal congestion.
Expanded roaming services and 5G network launch sets TNM apart in delivering enhanced connectivity and digital experiences to its customers in the country.
According to the statement, Comfone, TNM's partner in facilitating this service, is a vendor with the broadest portfolio of roaming services. Comfone offers connectivity, clearing, the largest roaming hub, as well as business intelligence and analytics services. With a wide global presence, Comfone serves over 600 customers worldwide, including more than 110 in Africa.
The expansion of roaming services enables TNM users to stay connected and enjoy uninterrupted communication while exploring the world beyond their home country.
Roaming services enable mobile phone subscribers to talk, text, and access the internet when outside their wireless provider's coverage area. Through roaming, users can utilize the network of another provider, ensuring wireless connectivity wherever they go.
