20 Jul 2007

The Tanzania Communications Regulatory Authority (TCRA) yesterday awarded an International and National Application Services licence to WBS Tanzania, a newly registered Tanzanian company with South African backing, which plans to offer wireless and internet access services under the name WBS (iBurst). The newcomer aims to introduce affordable, high capacity multiple access wireless broadband communications technology to Tanzania, within three months.

WBS already operates in South Africa, Botswana and Ghana and is now extending its footprint to the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda and Tanzania.
