New sites in border areas - Mobile network coverage in total growing
Thursday, 29 July 2010 02:29

The first half of 2010 ends with the implementation of eight new sites. Noteworthy is the improvement of coverage in border areas and the opening of the 3G network in Los Palos and Oecussi. Until the end of the year are planned four new sites.

Uato Carbau, and Baguia Naunili (Iliomar) have now mobile coverage since last June, while Uato Lari, Aliembata and Hatubuilico are the latest areas of deployment of towers. Laga and Lospalos have better coverage with a new tower of 30 and 50 meters, respectively.

However, there has been more growth in the border areas such as districts of Covalima / Suai and Bobonaro. The effort to improve service is evident in Tiliomar (covering the subdistricts of Tiliomar and Fohorem) Alto Lebos (covering the subdistrict of Fatu Lulik in Covalima / Suai subdistrict and Lolotoe Bobonaro).

Again in the border areas, four new sites are planned by the end of 2010. Oesilo (border southeast), Nitibe (southwest border) Passabe (southern border) and Citrana (western border). Only Sacatar (border) will be ready next year.

The 3G network has also been expanding and after Dili, Baucau, Gleno and Aileu, Los Palos and Oecussi will also be activated in the upcoming days. By the end of the year all district capitals will be covered by 3G, as well as the inauguration of the Internet Community Centers, starting in mid August in Maubara.

Training program in Timor Telecom
Tuesday, 15 June 2010 00:33
Affixed to a future of quality

Last May proved to be very fruitful regarding to the commercial department. The training, conducted by Odete Fachada Consultants Limited, mainly focused in call centers, stores, on line technical support, commercial street and telemarketing team. And the results are satisfactory.

With the aim of improving services for customer service, the training proved very fruitful and with positive results. Even Crisogno Boavida, Manager of commercial area (call center), says that "the clients, themselves, were surprised about this new service." However, what about the training itself? "Being in Timor is very rewarding," begins to say Rita Correia, one of the trainers, along with the Director Odete Fachada and Sara Crespim. Despite all the difficulties encountered by employees of Timor Telecom, there was an "eager to learn, improve and strive to speak in portuguese," she continues.

The language barrier was overcome by writing and translation into Tetum because "more than 90% of the customers speak Tetum and if we are to teach techniques of service quality and power sales, it must be in language that is spoken more", explains Rita Correia.

"Pride in working for TT"

The training included the presence of TT new and old staff members elements and Doria Araujo, Commercial Network Chief Department, said that employees with more years in the company are willing "to teach what they know" and confesses that she also learned a lot and emphasize the patience of the three trainers. The inference that Rita Correia took out from all trainees was, above all, a "great pride in working for TT and the feeling of having a future. Then they are willing to learn, improve and it's a sort of thing not very common, at least, in Portugal. "But what is the secret for the success?" Our training is a very practical exercise and it is this is our most valuable as a training company, as we do not have any standard training. We always make the whole process, a survey about the products, information and services. Each time we get in a training room, is just like as we enter in a business environment "Rita Correia bails.
