Vodacom Tanzania has announced a new internet campaign meant to enable customers to access browse for as little as 250/- per day.
The campaign, dubbed Wajanja Internet Campaign, will see internet consumers browse, stream and download materials faster and more cheaply on the Vodacom Tanzania network. Facebook and twitter access will however continue to be free for all customers.
According to Vodacom Tanzania Managing Director Rene Meza, the company is “committed to making it easy for customers to understand pricing for volume or time-based internet which has been quite complicated and confusing among internet consumer across the country”.
He said it was becoming increasingly important for all service providers, including Vodacom, “to reduce the complexities that hinder ease of use for new information and communication technologies”.
“We have structured our internet offering in a way that can be easily understood by our customers since we believe that this is the best way to promote increased internet usage for social and economic development,” the MD said in a note to the media, adding: “Both pre-paid and post-paid customers can now experience faster connections on both wireless devices and on plug-ins such as modems.”
He further disclosed that, according to the new structure, Vodacom internet consumers will now get unlimited internet access for seven days at only 10,000/- or 30 days at 30,000/- at full speed.
To purchase the bundles, one has to dial *149*01# and to get the full listing of the internet services one should SMS the word Vodacom internet to 15300 for free.
