In recent years, Zambia has drastically improved its cellular telephone network and offers a choice between three cellphone companies: Zamtel, MTN, and Celtel. Though coverage in some areas is spotty outside of Lusaka and the provincial capitals, it is available in 75 percent of the districts. Text messaging is one of the cheapest, most reliable ways to communicate with fellow Volunteers and staff, as well as with friends and family back home.
There are several Internet service providers in Zambia. The number of internet cafes around the country is also growing. As the Peace Corps has installed wireless Internet in each of the provincial offices/resource centers, many Volunteers have found it very beneficial to bring a netbook or laptop to Zambia. However, if you do bring a laptop, make sure to insure it.
