Zamtel has recorded cases of vandalism on its critical equipment which has resulted in downgraded internet service quality.
Zamtel Chief Executive Officer Sydney Mupeta says multiple sites in Lusaka have been affected with Makeni and Meanwood suffering the most damage to equipment over the last few days.
Mupeta says the cost of the damaged equipment is estimated at around 50 thousand United States dollars per site.
He says vandalism on equipment has led to slow internet.
Mupeta stated that a further examination of the damaged equipment and sophistication of the act suggest that the vandals could be individuals with sound technical knowledge of the telecom industry.
He further said a team of engineers are examining all sites and working round the clock to ensure that service is restored to optimal levels.
This is according to a statement issued to ZNBC News by Zamtel Corporate Communications Manager Changwe Kabwe.
