Vodacom Tanzania is taking its customers on a high speed roller
coaster ride. Vodacom Tanzania has switched on its 3G HSPDA network
in Dar-es-Salaam. With the installation of a 3G HSDPA network,
Tanzania is only the second country in Africa with such technology,
the first being South Africa.
3G HSDPA (Third Generation High Speed Downlink Data Packet Access) is
a technology that delivers superior speed with the added benefit of
mobility. The 3G HSDPA technology can be installed onto the GSM
network backbone to provide Internet or 'data' connectivity via a
mobile device. Vodacom Tanzania's 3G HSDPA network will enable users
to browse the internet, make and receive video calls and MMS
messages. Additionally, users can access their company network, check
email, chat online as well as download online entertainment
applications such as music and games at high speeds all from the
convenience of their mobile phone anywhere in Dar-es-Salaam.
The key differentiator between GPRS and 3G HSDPA is high speed.
"Vodacom is the first in East Africa with such technology and we
believe that 3G HSDPA will give us a major competitive advantage,"
Vodacom Tanzania Managing Director Romeo Kumalo, said from his office
"3G technology is an important step forward for Vodacom, as the
telecommunications industry enters a new era in mobile
communications. Vodacom is rapidly and dramatically changing the way
its customers experience their wireless communications. It is also
shaping the future of mobile and broadband internet communications
through its continued leadership in wireless technology," he added.
The 3G HSDPA network commercial launch is scheduled for the first
quarter of 2007.
