Tanzanian fixed line operator Six Telecoms Company (6Telecom) has launched a new Metro Network in the country, targeting the corporate user segment. 6Telecom is looking to offer business users improved internet connectivity in the region with CEO Nick Odero noting: ‘As companies grow and expand in Tanzania it is important that they have a dedicated network that will allow for them to connect all of their branches in a redundant and secure manner that is robust and cost effective. Metro Network is aligned to act as a business development partner for our clients as reliable and secure networks are a vital component to growth within East Africa.’
The unit’s 6Telecom Data arm aims to match customer requirements to the desired level of connectivity they need. For example, some customers will require more than fibre-optic provisioning and here, Metro Network can offer licensed microwave links it says. 6 Telecoms’ new Metro Network covers a number of areas in Tanzania such as Dar es Salaam, Arusha, Moshi, Mwanza, Shinyanga, Dodoma, Morogoro, Iringa, Mbeya, and Mtwara.
