The Tanzanian Daily News reports that Tanzania Telecommunications Company Ltd (TTCL) has reduced its data services tariffs effective from this month. The acting head of Product Development at TTCL, Mr Issaya Ernest, told journalists in Dar es Salaam over the weekend that apart from tariff reduction, the company had increased the speed of the bandwidth offered to improve services. ‘We have decided to add more value to our data services to both our retail and wholesale customers,’ he said. The price of 1Mbps for wholesale customers has fallen from USD900 per month to USD450 per month, for example. Meanwhile, broadband subscribers on dedicated lines have seen their speeds double at the same price they used to pay. The executive stated that the changes will benefit more than 40,000 TTCL internet customers in the country and other corporate customers connected to the company’s national fibre optic cable.
