SMILE Launches the fastest internet in Arusha
This week, Smile Communications Tanzania (Smile) launches its Fourth Generation Long Term Evolution (4G LTE) services in Arusha, bringing the high speed internet revolution to businesses, organizations and residents in and around Arusha city.
Smile offers the fastest mobile internet on the market; its 4G LTE network provides internet services at speeds that other providers cannot match. The Smile network uses the most advanced telecommunications technologies and standards available anywhere in the world, and provides unparalleled speed, reliability, quality and ease of use that vastly improves the online experience.
LTE (Long Term Evolution) also known as 4G LTE enables ultra-high-speed internet access because it is the cutting-edge fourth-generation (4G) mobile technology standard and represents a step change in evolution from existing wireless technologies such as GSM-2G/GPRS/
“Smile launched in Dar es Salaam on May 16 2013, making Tanzania the first country in Africa to access this revolutionary technology. We are very excited about bringing this technology to Arusha. As a notable international hub that has vast, thriving and dynamic service and tourism sectors and a range of learning institutions, Arusha has so many businesses, organisations and people that will benefit from high speed internet,” said Fiona McGloin, Smile Country Manager for Tanzania and Uganda.
“We at Smile are confident that providing reliable, high speed internet will significantly contribute to the success of Arusha based businesses and also give the people in Arusha a faster, more reliable and cost effective service,” Ms. McGloin said.
In Tanzania’s vibrant communications sector, 4G LTE internet now leads the race being six-times faster than 3G and four-times faster than 3.75G. Smile provides an average speed of 6Mbps download and 3Mbps upload. With this technology users are guaranteed faster downloading and importantly, faster uploading speeds for files, emails, data, music, movies and games; for accessing internet based applications;
“We pride ourselves in bringing high speed internet to Arusha that is comparable to the speed and quality enjoyed in Europe. Smile won’t just provide ‘an’ internet service, we will provide the fastest, most reliable internet service at a transparent competitive price and we also commit to delivering high-level customer satisfaction and service,” added Ms. McGloin.
As part of Smile’s Corporate Social Responsibility programme, the company provides free high-speed internet to government schools: to date, Smile has equipped 10 schools in Dar es Salaam and is now rolling out the programme in Arusha.
