Dar es Salaam. Clients with Vodacom Tanzania can now enjoy faster data speed following the company’s investment in its 3G networks and connection to the National Information Communication Technology Broadband Backbone (NICTBB).

According to firm’s managing director Rene Meza Vodacom connected its northern optic fibre ring, that is, Dar es Salaam-Arusha-Dodoma to the NICTBB in November.

Vodacom customers in these areas now enjoy seamless communication as well as improved speed in data services on Vodacom’s 3G network. Vodacom has invested over Sh800 million in the NITCBB project, said Meza.

“The move has been well adopted with our subscribers in Morogoro, Tanga, Moshi, Arusha, Babati, Singida, Dodoma and Iringa subscribing to our various Internet bundles such as SupaCheka by the day,” he said.

The company also offers its corporate clients who have a presence in various regions a chance to have easier access to their branches and subsidiaries through Wimax service.“Wimax is one of the technologies which we deploy in the market to enable Internet and data connection to our corporate clients,” said Meza.
