Afghan Telecom, a state-run company, launched a full mobile and Prepaid system. The customers of CDMA phones at the beginning were only able to use their phones only in their own provinces. Eliminating this problem, MCIT started few projects at a total cost of 34 million USD to expand the CDMA network and connect the 34 provinces with each other and change the previous system into full mobility and prepaid one. Now, nearly in all provinces the customers can contact through their own CDMA phones to other provinces and abroad. The system has also lowered the cost for local and long distant calls.
