Surfing costs cut by 100%

It should now be cheaper to surf the Internet via Tanzania Telecommunication Company Limited services, thanks to firm’s resolve to cut tariffs on data services by up to 100 per cent.

The TTCL acting head of product development, Mr Issaya Ernest, told journalists in Dar es Salaam over the weekend that effective this month (August) the wholesale price of a bundle that formerly sold for $900 (Sh1.5 million) will now be available for only $450 per month.

Likewise, the company’s 256 Mbps broadband line that initially fetched Sh30,000 per month for retail customers has been improved to 512Mbps and made available at Sh40,000. 

“These changes will benefit more than 40,000 TTCL Internet users in the country including corporate customers connected to the national fibre optic cable,” he said.

The decision, according to Mr Ernest, stems from the company’s commitment to play the leading role in turning Tanzania an international hub for Information and Communication Technology (ICT) infrastructure and solutions.

This is vital if the country is to attain sustainable socio-economic development.

At the same time, dedicated broadband customers will enjoy double their current speed at the old price.

“This simply means a customer who had subscribed for the speed of 1Mbps will get 2Mbps for the same old price,” he said. It comes at a time when several government ministries, agencies and departments have already been connected through the National ICT Broadband Backbone with the aim of achieving fast and sustainable development through e-government.
