On the occasion of the World Telecommunications and Information Society Day, celebrated every year on May 17th, MTN welcomed at their Latsia premises students from Latsia Second Primary School and Geri Second Primary School.. 

The aim of the visits was for students to become familiar with the telecommunications industry in a very special and interesting way.

MTN representatives welcomed the students and their teachers and informed them about World Telecommunications Day. A guided tour around MTN’s technical department facilities followed, where students learned how a connection to the Internet is established, what it takes to initiate a phone call, all about 2G, 3G and 4G technologies, how fiber optics are deployed underground as well as the various functions carried out in the network control room. During the tour, the students had the opportunity to ask for more information and have their questions answered regarding telecommunications.

MTN once again educates and enlightens children on the subject of communication and the digital age.
