TTCL offers very competitive mobile voice and data convergent bundle

THE Tanzania Telecommunication Company Limited (TTCL) yesterday launched an offer which allows customers to purchase data, internal and voice bundles depending on their pockets.

Through the ‘Buffe bundle’ TTCL customers can prepare themselves a full packaged bundle depending on the pocket with no expiry date until it finishes.

TTCL director for commercial Vedastus Mwita said the launch of the offer was part of the company's tradition of rewarding customers every end of the year.

"Every year we reward our customers with gifts, the good thing is that the offer will be continued and we serve our customers," he said

He said the idea to launch the offer was aimed at facilitating communication which at times is hindered by lack of money and many others

According to Mwita one has to dial 108*30# to prepare a buffe

He further said TTCL currently boasts a 2.8 per cent market share for voice bundles in the country.

In 2017, Parliament approved a new legislation that transformed TTCL into a fully established state-of-the-art business corporation.

The law was aimed at changing TTCL from a company to a corporation, with an aim of making the previously poorly performing company to compete with other telecom companies in the market.

The Tanzania Telecommunication Corporation Act, 2017 repealed the Tanzania Telecommunications Company Incorporation Act, 2002 to make provisions for the establishment of the Tanzania Telecommunications Corporation, management of the strategic telecommunications infrastructure as well commercial and economic viability of telecommunications services, among others.

For the past 15 years, TTCL was owned by the government with 65 per cent and Bharti Airtel from India had 35 per cent. But the joint venture came to an end in June 2016 after the government took the shares by 100 per cent after paying 14.7bn/- to Bharti Airtel.
