15 Nov 2007

Redline Communications has won a contract to supply Tanzania-based telecoms provider Hotspot Business Solutions with the country’s first national WiMAX network. Financial details were not disclosed, but it is understood Redline will supply the operator with its RedMAX products, enabling Hotspot to deliver high-quality voice, video and data internet services across the country, via its six-city WiMAX network. The Hotspot WiMAX network will be closely managed and coordinated by RapidCloud Technology. The first phase of the project will be launched today in Dar es Salaam and Mwanza. The first phase will also include the deployment of a RedMAX network in Arusha in December 2007. Hotspot expects to increase its subscriber base in these locations by up to 60% over the next two years. The second phase deployment will begin in January 2008 and will bring WiMAX services to Dodoma, Morogoro and Zanzibar.
