This blog post is about Zamtel internet settings and how you can set up the same. Zamtel is a Zambian Government-owned telecommunication company that provides communications solutions for the Zambian market.

It has unique mobile phone internet settings compared to MTN, Airtel, and Vodafone. On the Zamtel network, the internet settings are a bit cumbersome. Given the other operators all you need is to edit the Access Point Names with “internet” or “default” in the APN field for the Android and Windows-powered phones.

Zamtel has been around longer and one would expect they should have the simplest settings yet. Bureaucracy organization culture and political interference all play a role in the way Zamtel is run.

Nonetheless, today, Zamtel has been transformed into a highly competitive organization led by a team of visionary men and women that fully understand and believe in the transformational and catalytic nature of telecommunications that can play in the development of Zambia.
