Zanzibar Telecommunications (Zantel) launched GSM services in Tanzania’s capital, Dar es Salaam, at the end of last week. Zantel was awarded a national licence in March, allowing it to expand its coverage to the mainland, and has agreed a ten-year deal with Vodacom Tanzania to share its wireless infrastructure. The company intends to launch both wireline and wireless services across all 25 regions of the country.
