Smiles Tanzania launches 4G internet in Arusha
Tanzanian operator Smile Communications has introduced its high-speed 4G internet services in Arusha, one of the big cities in the country.
Smile Communications Tanzania said the internet services in Arusha will have comparable speeds and quality as in Europe.
These developments make Tanzania the first country in Africa to gain access to this revolutionary technology of its ultra-high speed broadband Internet access, the Fourth Generation Long Term Evolution (4G LTE) billed as the cutting-edge fourth-generation mobile technology.
Fiona McGloin, the Country Manager for Smile Communications in Tanzania and Uganda, said that Smile was confident that providing reliable, high-speed Internet would significantly contribute to Arusha’s success. Smile hopes to give Arusha a faster, more reliable and cost-effective service.
McGloin added that the laying of the fibre optic cables has to a greater extent boosted Internet uptake by people for development – all being the motivating factors for Smile to invest in Tanzania.
Customers of Smile Communications can now buy the 4GLTE internet packs from different retail sales outlets that have been set up in the city.
