Zimbabwe Online offers Wi-Fi

25 Jun 2007

Internet service provider Zimbabwe Online (ZOL), which introduced Wi-Fi hotspots in the capital Harare two months ago, has reported that, after an initial slow response, demand is now ‘overwhelming.’ ‘We have a large number of establishments requesting to become partners,’ said a company spokesperson. The ISP’s public Wi-Fi service, ZOLspot, enables internet connection speeds of up to 256kbps. Users purchase a voucher at any ZOLspot host premises, allowing access for periods of between 15 minutes and two months. ZOL plans to expand the service nationwide, with hotspots in Bulawayo and Mutare already up and running.
