Vodacom Tanzania launches Supa Network campaign

Vodacom Tanzania launches Supa Network campaign

Vodacom Tanzania has launched a campaign, Supa Network, to raise awareness of the capacity of its network.

The network operator claims to have the strongest network in Tanzania "with an unrivalled 4G download speed of up to 27Mbps, which is almost twice as fast as the next competitor."

It adds that it has achieved 90% population coverage over the years reaching urban and rural centres with its voice, data and mobile money services.

Supa Network has been initiated to advertise the company's ongoing investment in infrastructure, including the expansion and upgrade of ten new data sites daily.

Vodacom Tanzania Plc's Managing Director Hisham Hendi said: "Vodacom Tanzania's commitment to ensuring that Tanzania is connected on a global scale is evidenced through our investments and expansion strategies. There is an average of ten communication sites that are being built, expanded or upgraded in a single day to deliver reliable voice and data services of the highest standards to our customers. This is testament to our commitment in ensuring we offer the best services to our customers. We have invested over 171.4 billion shillings to expand our 4G coverage in major cities and improve the quality of our network in efforts to transform the lives of Tanzanians through technology."

Nguvu Kamando, the company's head of network and performance department, said this investment in its data infrastructure has paid off.

Hisham concluded: 'We believe in the power of technology to transform societies and make a positive impact on individuals, organisations, businesses and sectors such and health education and E-Government."
