    Default Cell Phone Coverage Bostwana

    I tried searching the forum for a thread regards cell phone coverage on the site but to no avail.

    Does anyone have info regards cell phone coverage for Ghanzi, Maun, Linyanti, Savuti and Kasane? Which service provider etc,etc.

    For what it's worth, we've got roaming on one of our cellphones and at Ihaha we picked up a clear signal from Namibia. Use that to call my son at home.
